Killorglin railway viaduct
The viaduct formed part of the Great South and western Railway's route that ran from Farranfore to Valentia Harbour. The railway closed on 1st February 1960 and was officially wound up 5 months later.

Today, the bridge is open for use as a footpath.

There has been talk recently of re-opening this railway as a single track line to Caherciveen along the north section of the Ring of Kerry due to the spectacular scenery along that route.
