Visit our Monorail Train and Museum. Take a trip back in time and see what the Lartigue Monorail looked like this re-creation of the historical railway that ran from Listowel to Ballybunion between 1888 and 1924. Footage in our film is over 100 years old and gives an insight into the train long ago and then shows the re-making of the Train. Spend an hour or so altogether re-living the past!

An amazing system excellently re-created with a great crowd of knowledgeable staff. The video show is great and the artifacts very interesting. Well worth a visit.

This was a great afternoon. All the staff are really friendly and it's surprising that they are all volunteers because the level of care giving to us and attention too detail was amazing. They really made a lot of effort with all the visitors and...More

Everything you could ever want to know about the utterly bizarre Listowel & Ballybunion railway, including the closest thing there'll ever be to a restored operational section of the line (unlimited rides!), and the most welcoming, charming and entertaining volunteer staff imaginable. Fascinating, fun, utterly...More
