The Toy Soldier Factory has become one of Ireland’s best hidden attractions. Tours showcase this family-owned business, established in Ireland since 1976. It is situated in the beautiful little village of Kilnamartyra, half way between Killarney town and Cork City on the main N22 road, only a short distance from Macroom town.
The factory produces hundreds of different black rubber moulds that allow customers, to make & paint their own figures from a model soldier, fairies, seasonal ornaments, chess sets, animals and other figurines in metal as many times as you wish.
The factory is also home to the Prince August line of moulds, sold worldwide to enthusiasts who create toy soldiers at home in the same way they have been made for hundreds of years.
