An Irish railway viaduct from the 19th century

The Kilmacthomas Viaduct dates from 1878. It used to allow the transit of goods by rail. Closed in 1982, it has now become a tourist site. It must be said that it is a fine example of 19th century construction.

Thus, the viaduct is in the form of 7 rubble stone arches. Built from limestone blocks, it combines arches, voussoirs, and parapets, which gives it a massive, solid, and timeless appearance.

Nowadays, you can climb the viaduct. It’s all about the beauty of the view at the top! A lovely spot, in the middle of the Irish countryside, conducive to peace and quiet. Icing on the cake: access is free!
