The magic of rails golden age has been brought to life in Kilmeadan, Co Waterford. Experience the beauty of the Suir Valley from a narrow gauge railway in partially open period carriages as you take in the panoramic views of the river and rolling farmland. This is an area rich in history and only accessible by train. Great fun for all ages.
