Downpatrick & County Down Railway

It is Ireland's only 5ft 3in. (standard) gauge mainline heritage railway in the country. The railway currently operates through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty over approximately two miles of a restored section of the former Belfast & County Down Railway main line. Nestling under the shadow of the picturesque Down Cathedral, the line runs to Inch Abbey, a ruined 12th Century Cistercian Abbey, with a further one mile built along the old Newcastle route to a Viking King's Grave, completing a triangle of track, which is hoped will be extended to the hamlet of Ballydugan three miles south of Downpatrick.
