Irish Railway Memorabilia 

The Headhunters Barber Shop and Railway Museum have one of the largest collections of Irish railway memorabilia on display. The collection 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 lines were closed in 1957. 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 see uniforms, signalling instruments, signs, timetables, and tickets, as well as 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

The Johnston family created this unique museum as they genuinely love 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 our experience there. This place will be a recommendation for those interested in railways. It’s also a great place to get a haircut, so if you’re in Enniskillen, visit it.
