Worth a visit if you are in Cork or the surrounding areas. Situated just off the N71 this model village is made up of separate villages each depicting a local village scene. Several locomotives travel around the site. Nicely maintained grounds.

If your into model railways, you will love this. This is a reconstruction of the town on a tiny scale with a railway driving through it. It is an unusual destination, but if you have an hour or two to kill, then drop in.

Hi This is the model village, we are a visitor attraction , not a hotel, were you looking at one of the local hotels in Clonakilty perhaps?
