The Kerry Model Railway
The model of the Tralee Dingle narrow-gauge is exhibited at the complex with other model railways. There are also artefacts and more items.
The only power it needs is the wind! Once there is a breeze, the windmill sails are turning. Visitors can get up close and appreciate the scale and complexity of the machinery and can climb to the top of the windmill.
Blennerville was the main port of emigration from County Kerry during the Great Famine (1845-1848) and was, during those years, the home port of the famous emigrant barque “Jeanie Johnston”. The visitor centre houses a fascinating display on Irish emigration including models of the infamous coffin ships.
