Fintown Railway

Is é Iarnród Bhaile na Finne an t-aon iarnród atá ag feidhmiú i gContae Dhún na nGall. Suite i measc fána fraoigh ag amharc amach ar Loch Fhinne, tá an t-iarnród, atá ath-bhunaithe ar phíosa de iar-iarnród Contae Dhún na nGall 3 m/5clm ar fhad. Ba é an suíomh álainn seo a spreag an scríbhneoir agus an drámadóir iomraiteach Brian Friel le rá? Tá an turas seo trí ghleann nádúrtha, iargúlta ar bhruach loch álainn faoi scáth an Eachla.

The Fintown Railway is the only operational railway in Co. Donegal. Set amidst spectacular highland scenery overlooking Lough Finn, the railway (3 m/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.

This unique journey is a three mile return trip right along the shores of Loch Finn. The reopening on the 3rd June 1995 of this first section of the intown - Glenties railway restoration project commemorated the centenary of the original opening in 1895.
