Irish Railway Memorabilia 

The Headhunters Barber Shop and Railway Museum have one of the largest collections of Irish railway memorabilia on display. Which starts at the reconstructed booking office where the ticket collector (a statue) invites people to get on a tour. Once you step on board, you will be taken through a tour that travels from Fermanagh and the border counties until the closure of the lines in 1957.  All this includes different exhibits which are created differently, such as the Station Master’s office, booking office and signal box.

While walking inside, you will get the chance to see uniforms, signalling instruments, signs, timetables, tickets. As well as those photographs from the three local railway companies: The Great Northern Railway, The Sligo Leitrim and Northern Counties Railway, and the Clogher Valley Railway.

A Unique Museum

This unique museum was created by the Johnston family as they had a genuine love for railways and history. It has become one of the most popular attractions in Enniskillen. We fell in love with the idea of the place as a whole and loved the experience we had there. This place will definitely be a recommendation for those who are interested in the world of railways. It’s also a great place to get a haircut, so if you’re in Enniskillen make sure you give this place a visit.

What might be making a place different is the idea behind opening it or the things it might be offering to the visitors; those which are done and built on a different kind of idea and those which might give the visitor the chance to see things for the first time are considered the ones which will turn to be the most successful.The Headhunters Barber Shop and Railway Museum in Enniskillen is one of those different places which is considered different in Northern Ireland because in addition to the hair cut which boys will be able to get, the whole family will get the chance to go through a new experience by wandering through the place and see what it has.Exploring that old time of travel is not offered everywhere and of course when you get to think about it, you will never consider that being in a barber shop place, because this is considered one idea which we believe is different.This project which is all about the combination and mixture between being a barber shop and at the same time a place that is displaying the history of the local railway. The Johnston family was the mind that prepared for this place which became one of the most visited attractions in Enniskillen, county Fermanagh, which it succeeded at because of the skills they carried for cutting the hair and the interest they had in the history of local railway.
