Visit the Donegal Railway Heritage Centre in Donegal Town and find out just what it was like to travel on the narrow gauge railways of County Donegal.

Stretching from Derry and Strabane to Glenties and Ballyshannon, the narrow gauge County Donegal Railway provided the essential transport for farmers and fishermen, businessmen and schoolchildren, everyone that needed to get about.

The Donegal Railway Heritage Centre, which includes an historical presentation of artefacts and a gift shop is dedicated to re-awakening an interest in Donegal's railway past.

History of Donegal Railway
Throughout the many years of its existence it provided a vital transport service to the communities it served. It was an important local employer, providing jobs for hundreds of people, teaching useful skills and bringing valuable wages into many homes. Even its very buildings contributed to the local scene with families settled and children raised in the station houses and crossing keepers cottages.

Open Monday-Friday from 10:00-17:00 | Saturday/Sunday 14:00-17:00 | Summer opening; July/August
