The Model Village in picturesque 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 handmade model of the old West Cork Railway Line with fully working trains and the towns that the railway served and so is a delightful way to whet the appetite for your visit to Clonakilty, Kinsale, Dunmanway and Bandon.
Each model is a replica of the town as it was back in the 1940’s and it’s a great way to make local history real for all ages. 


The indoor interpretive room tells the story of the railway towns and the people who lived and worked on the lines.


Our indoor soft play room and outdoor playground is a great way for children to let off steam while you put the feet up in our charming tea rooms in an original train carriage or browse our gift shop.


And Choo Choo, our road train tour of Clonakilty is a lovely way to round off a tour.
