About Táilte Tours

Táilte Tours is a new, voluntary led initiative set up in 2022. Our organisational team currently consists of Niall Kelly, Alex Richardson and David Walsh, all of whom have long experience in heritage railway, railtours and tourist train operation and management. Our aim is to raise awareness for Ireland's voluntary run heritage railways and museums, and, where possible, also raising extra funds to help further their projects and other charitable causes. We also aim to promote rail travel to those who mightn't otherwise use it, while also providing educational resources on Ireland's rich railway history.

We aim to do this through holding railway-themed events, the first of which, in August 2022, was a railtour weekend from Dublin visiting Tralee and Dromod. We have also operated a railtour out of Cork and hope to do so from other locations in the future.

The money raised from our first few ventures has been used to purchase fundraising badges for projects at the Cavan & Leitrim Railway Museum, Downpatrick & County Down Railway museum, and County Donegal Railway Heritage Centre, with similar donations due to be announced for our other chosen groups during the summer of 2024, keep an eye out. These will enable the respective groups to raise an estimated €1,500-€2,000 at no expense to them.
