Downpatrick & County Down Railway

The Downpatrick and County Down Railway runs through the drumlin countryside of County Down - St. Patrick's Country - over the River Quoile and under the graceful Down Cathedral. With a mix of steam and diesel trains, and vintage carriages, there's plenty for train fans of all ages - from wee kids to "big kids". A working railway museum, where the exhibits are operated and worked to show the context in which they were used.

Small artefacts are displayed in the station museum, providing a tangible link to the history of the old Belfast & County Down Railway that originally ran this part of the line. The railway is home to Ireland's only designated "Carriage Gallery", telling the story of Ireland's railways through its collection of vintage carriages.
