Fintown Railway

Fintown, County Donegal

A restored railway line located near Fintown, County Donegal

Tourism Ireland

The Fintown Railway is the only operational railway in Co. Donegal. Set amidst spectacular highland scenery overlooking Lough Finn, the railway (5km) is a restored section of the former County Donegal Railway. This setting prompted the famous international playwright Brian Friel to pronounce "What is on offer is a unique journey along the shores of a lake as grand as any in Switzerland or Minnesota". The railway nestled deep in the heart of spectacular mountainous scenery steeped in tradition, myth and folklore, and running along the crystal clear waters of Loch Finn is a million miles from the constant rush of every day life. You are invited to relive those bygone days when Donegal had 200 miles of narrow gauge railway operated by the County Donegal and Londonderry & Lough Swilly Railway Companies.
