We were very interested to see the amazing array of railway memorabilia at this museum. It is very quaint going through the barbers shop to get to it. There were lots of intersting posters advertising railway journeys from the past. The metal sign collection was also fascinating. Worth going to see it.

We all really enjoyed our visit to the museum when we finished Enniskillen earlier in the year. I thought I had already written a review singing your praises... so sorry for the delay. What a fabulous collection of local railway memorabilia...

An incredible collection of railway memorabilia from the time where Enniskillen had an active railway station. Hard to find as its located down an alleyway on Darling Street but worth hunting around for it! A cluster of small rooms just off the barbers they are jam packed with lots to look at with various displays giving you the feeling of... More

Great way to pass an hour and plenty of model trains for kids . Right in the centre of Enniskillen close to the two main churches. Right beside a brilliant cafe - nice selection of breads.

My only disappointmnet was that my hair didn't need cutting! This place can be a little hard to find but don't leave Enniskillen without visiting. There are four or five rooms/spaces and stairs full of railway memorabilia with a barber's shop in one part of the museum. It is all cleverly laid out and entrance is by donation - just... More

Fantastic museum set up, they have made the most of limited space to present the rich railway heritage of the region in fascinating objects, visual and audio displays, installations and well researched text and exhibitions. A must see if in the area. I didn't need or have time to get a haircut but there was two staff on and about... More

Great fun. Gave a real flavour of railways in Ireland. Very unusual to squeeze past the barber and the customers to pass through to the main exhibitions.

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to Headhunters Barber Shop & Railway Museum. Our visitors often remark that we are a 'rail' novelty and must be the only barbers shop & railway museum in Ireland, perhaps even the world!

A gem. Very unusual and unique. I heard about Headhunters on "Nationwide" on RTE, and immediately knew I had to visit. How often can get a short back and sides, view a museum, and get all the info on the town in the one venue? And they only charge for the haircut, which is not obligatory. These lads are genuine,...
