“Excellent Experience”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

This is a unique opportunity to experience history. I took this train ride with my daughter, her husband and teenage grandchildren. Everyone enjoyed it immensely. This is in the heart of Gaelic speaking Donegal. The scenery is spectacular and the people are extremely hospitable.
Just so a previous reviewer should note the lake is in fact Lough Finn - 3 miles long and absolutely pristine. Well worth a visit !

“This was a great little railway journey!”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

This was a very enjoyable journey on an old train, which travelled along Lough Lynn. Halfway through the journey we listened to a commentary telling us the history of the train, which was very amusing!

“Awful Service”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

Went for a trip on 5pm train as advertised on website. Train finished at 4.30, those running the train just upped and left leaving bewildered customers. Can't comment on the actual train journey as it never happened but seriously poor customer service and poor marketing. Disappointed children. Would not recommend.

“Fintown Railway”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

Me and my family went to Fintown railway during July 2012, very disappointing and the journey only lasts for 20 minutes. The train journey is expensive and the distance is a kilometre long and the train then goes back to the station.
