Located on the Tuam Road just outside of Athenry, this is a little treasure for fans of classic Hollywood movies. This diminutive railway station on the Tuam/Athenry line at Ballyglunin was the "Castletown" station in the John Ford film "The Quiet Man". The movie was made in Ballyglunin in 1952, and starred John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara in the leading roles. The line is not in use anymore but the station itself rekindles memories of the film.
