STEP BACK IN TIME
Cashelnagor Railway Station is a beautifully restored Station House and Waiting Room on the now dismantled “Letterkenny & Burtonport Railway Line”. Built in 1902, the building was home to a long line of stationmasters and their families until the railway closed in 1947. The last family left the railway station in 1954 and the house slowly fell into disrepair. We purchased the dilapidated building in 2017 and undertook a complete restoration.
Step back in time! Take a break from the hustle and bustle of modern life and enjoy a stay in the beautifully restored ‘Station House’ or ‘Waiting Room’. Both units have been completely renovated and furnished with traditional furniture and finishes. It’s like stepping back in time!
