Donegal Railway Heritage Centre

Our colourful museum has the complete story of the narrow gauge railways of County Donegal.

The County Donegal Railway and the Londonderry & Lough Swilly Railway, with a total of 225 miles of track, formed the largest narrow gauge railway system in north-west Europe. The story is told through large illustrated wall-boards, and on a variety of DVDs shown in two locations in our centre. These can be watched in comfort while enjoying a hot or cold drink and a snack.( See last 2 photos below).

A variety of beautifully constructed models in various scales, some of which can be seen working, also tell the story and give an insight into how the railways were. For the researcher we have the largest digitised collection of Donegal railway photos in the world, a selection of which is on automatic presentation for visitors. There are also several restored items of County Donegal Railway rolling stock which visitors can enter and explore.

DVDs, books and other souvenir items can be bought in the shop or if you cannot visit us you can buy the DVDs, books, posters and other items from our online shop.

Feel free to visit us if you are in the Donegal Town area. Our opening times are on the Contact Us tab.
