A 2km vestige of this historic line survives near Moyasta on the Kilkee Rd (N67) 6km northwest of Kilrush. Run by volunteers, the beautifully restored steam-powered trains shuttle back and forth over the open land.
Kilfenora is best known for its high crosses, three in the glass-covered cathedral ruins and a large one from the 12th century in a field about 100m to the west. Most interesting is the 800-year-old Doorty Cross. It lay broken in two until the 1950s, when it was re-erected. A panel in the ruins does an excellent job of explaining the carvings that adorn the crosses.
