Find out what to do and see on your visit to Downpatrick & County Down Railway
There’s plenty to see and do on your visit to our railway. It’s not just a ten-minute train trip – you can happily spend an afternoon exploring everything around our stations and museum.
We have a unique collection of old carriages and locomotives in the Carriage Gallery building. We have everything from beautifully restored carriages to unrestored examples that need a LOT of work to get them running again. You can also play games, watch films, and the kids can dress up in period costume or railway uniform.
The ruins of the ancient Cistercian Abbey can be reached with an easy five minute stroll from our Inch Abbey station. You can explore the ruins, take in the views, and in the summer it’s a lovely spot for a picnic. It was also used as a location for the TV Series Game of Thrones.
