“Cute but expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Good for kids but nearly €30 for three of us for what doesn't amount to very much was a bit rich. Despite the advertising poster you are not allowed in amongst the models, difficult to keep a two yr old off. Only takes about 5 mins to go around and the playground if just a bit of rope, not a swing in sight.

“Great Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

I would recommend this corner of Clonakilty to every one young and old especially the train ride around town where all the locals are happy to wave to you as you drive by, a great way to spend a couple of hours

“A waste of money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

I am so annoyed we spent 33 euros for THAT; It was absolutely not worth the money and considering the beauties of West Cork, I felt cheated of money and time; Basically: little wodden house and a couple of trains going around; Even the souvenir shop is poor;

“A nice place to pass an hour or two”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

This is our second visit to the model village and I think I was more impressed the first time round (3yrs ago). It seems to be getting a bit run down, some of the buildings could do with some maintenance
