TOUR: Ballyglunin Train Station

  • Ballyglunin Train Station (map)

Six decades after Maureen O’Hara and John Wayne arrived into a Co Galway railway station for the filming of John Ford’s The Quiet Man, a community campaign has seen the redevelopment of Ballyglunin Train Station which now provides a visitor experience celebrating the legacy of the film. This delightful former railway station not only represents an important element of the heritage of County Galway.

The station is also a meeting space, where the focus of discussion is on the possibilities for revitalization via other community driven initiatives.  Attendees to this event are invited to engage in a consultative process in the creation of other potential creative outcomes for the locality.

Open on a ‘first come’ basis.
