About Kiltimagh Museum

Kiltimagh Museum is located at Kilkelly Road in Kiltimagh, Co. Mayo.

Opening Times
2.00 - 6.00pm, June to September.

Located in the old Railway Station, the last passenger train passed through the Station in 1963, and the last goods train in 1979. The loss of the station was a huge blow to the morale of the town and our hopes for its expansion. However, in the 1980s, we set out to transform the social and economic life of the town with the formation of IRD. The derelict station epitomised all that we wanted to change and so we set to work on transforming the Goods Store into a Museum. Two carriages were bought to commemorate the many emigrants of the past and our optimism about our future was reflected in the carnival atmosphere that accompanied the breath of life once more into the Station as the carriages were delivered. The former Stationmaster's house is now an Exhibition Centre, with regular art exhibitions.
