The Big Dig at Dublinia

Dig for ancient Viking treasure at the Dublinia Big Dig

Put your hard hat on and get your hands dirty to experience life as an Archaeologist.

Come and join the Big Dig in the grounds of Dublinia from the 24th to the 28th of March, where visitors will get to take part in our very own simulated archaeology excavation.

It promises to be a fun packed family event where children will get a chance to discover how archaeologists excavate and hopefully find some artefacts and treasures of their own.

Dig Times are at 10.30am/11.30am/12.30pm/2.30pm and 3.30pm.  No booking is necessary. 

Suitable for age 6 years+

About West Cork Model Railway Village

The Model Village in picturesque Clonakilty is the leading tourist destination in West Cork and an excellent way to start your tour of the region.

The village is a fully scaled handmade model of the old West Cork Railway Line with fully working trains and the towns that the railway served and so is a delightful way to whet the appetite for your visit to Clonakilty, Kinsale, Dunmanway and Bandon.
Each model is a replica of the town as it was back in the 1940’s and it’s a great way to make local history real for all ages.

The indoor interpretive room tells the story of the railway towns and the people who lived and worked on the lines.

Our indoor soft play room and outdoor playground is a great way for children to let off steam while you put the feet up in our charming tea rooms in an original train carriage or browse our gift shop.

And Choo Choo, our road train tour of Clonakilty is a lovely way to round off a tour.
