West Cork Model Railway Village

The Model Village in Clonakilty is the leading tourist destination in West Cork and an excellent way to start your tour of the region. The village is a fully scaled model of the West Cork towns that grew along the old railway line between 1930 and 1950 and so is a delightful way to whet the appetite for your visit to Clonakilty, Kinsale, Dunmanway and Bandon. Built on a miniature of the Railway line, you can enjoy a unique overview of the character and history of each heritage town that you will experience on your travels throughout West Cork.
