About Lartigue Monorail
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!

Really enthusiastic volunteers, great exhibition with some fascinating exhibits. The train journey is short but worth it. The children were allowed to help a little bit with turning the train round, and sound the horn so they were happy. Well worth a visit.

We stopped here and took in the monorail - totally different than expected. Very friendly museum staff - train journey itself was very different - triangular rails and quirky carriages. Unique and worth a visit. Kids loved it.

Never knew about the mono rail and the elderly gentleman that are the guides here are so welcoming and helpful and clearly love telling the story of this secret gem. Do support this attraction if you have the time. It is very informative and the glimpse into the past is very touching. Great job to everyone involved.

Great place to bring the kids. The men running the place are very friendly and interact with the kids great. All in all we spent about an hour and a half there . We learned all about how the engine and the track system worked and brought on a short but nice spin where the kids were able to sound the whistle and take photos. Great attraction and deserves more visitors
