Description

Come down and see the home of the Railway Preservation Society of Ireland (RPSI) and its locomotives.

This fascinating five-gallery museum provides an exciting opportunity to rub shoulders with the giants of steam. You can step onto the footplate of a heritage steam engine and learn how it works, walk through several historic carriages and observe from a viewing gallery as restoration work takes place on locomotives and coaches. The museum is the perfect place to hear entertaining stories about the railways of yesteryear and to learn about how the railway companies transformed society more than 100 years ago.

Limited spaces are available on guided tours at 10.30am, 12.00pm and 2pm (times may vary depending on volunteer availability). You can also self-guide at any time.
