This is a delightful way to see the major sights in the city and time permitting you can explore the individual attractions at leisure. The commentary on each location was excellent and our driver was a charming and personable individual, eager to help and interested...More

This trip is good for mobility challenged folk and children. It takes a good half hour. Recorded commentary is informative. Folksy music encourages a singalong. Carriages are comfortable enough and weather proof. Worth a try but can involve queuing so get there earlier than departure...More

This little train gave us a decent overview of the city of Kilkenny. Staff was pleasant and the narration was easy to understand. Not overpriced. This was an especially good option for our group as we have some who cannot do a lot of walking,...More

This short but informative tour gave us a chance to see where we wanted to go and how long it would take to get there. The city is surprisingly compact and each to walk.

This was a great way to get an overview of this beautiful city and, with Ireland's four seasons in one day, the fact that it has a glass roof and sliding windows is a plus! The driver was great, the commentary informative and the music...More

The tour runs on the hour and half-hour. It will give you a quick peek at all the towns highlights so you can easily decide what you want to see and spend your time and money on. Also, the price for seniors(60+) is 7 euros.

Ok so this is disguised as a train but its little more than a minivan with a trailer of seats - but so what. If you are looking for serious historical review - buy a book. Yes the music is a little corny (much of...More
