At first thought it would only be good for teens, but everyone seemed to enjoy. Takes about hour and 1/4 to really see and enjoy.

On day we visited weather was sunny and warm. The girls had a great time. It's a safe place for children to run about and enjoy . Us grow ups were able to sit and enjoy a cup of tea in old train as we waited to go on out train trip .

Had a lovely morning at the model rail museum so well done and detailed very quiet as the kids had gone back to school. The entrance price included a trip round clonakilty town in a tourist tram - what fun!

I have been there many times with my children when they were young and nieces and nephews more recently. It is ideal for families and children. It is particularly interesting for children who live in West Cork as they can see their town in miniature
