Worth a visit if you are in Cork or the surrounding areas. Situated just off the N71 this model village is made up of separate villages each depicting a local village scene. Several locomotives travel around the site. Nicely maintained grounds.

Hi This is the model village, we are a visitor attraction , not a hotel, were you looking at one of the local hotels in Clonakilty perhaps?
