“Friendly group and fun ride”

Lakeside Minature Railway
Ranked #2 of 2 Fun & Games in Clare
Attraction details
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The group of (mainly) old blokes who run this are very friendly and informative; the club room is very impressive (made up like an old luxury railway carriage) and the ride is fun - especially for kids.

The Lakeside Minature Railway operates two Sundays a month. For $2 you can go for a ride around Inchiquin Park, travelling over several bridges and through a tunnel. On this day there were four different trains operating, from a modern diesel to an old steam train. The rides are about 10 minutes. The volunteers were very helpful and chatty. It was a real fun experience with a number of parents and their children taking a second and third trip. The ticket office also sells soft drinks, tea/coffee and snacks.

When we left the Country Club hotel to go out for the day, within a couple of hundred metres we saw a couple of people riding a miniature train around the park and just had to go over and see what was going as my husband is a member of a train club in Qld. They offered us a train ride which I quickly said yes to - great fun. The club members are friendly guys and keen to share their knowledge, their workshops, yard and room full of genuine train memorabilia -seats and luggage racks from trains from the 1960s, posters - all free except $2 for the train ride. It is also set right beside the lake so a really nice place to stop anyway.
