Great way to quickly see highlights of Kilkenny and decide of where to spend more time. Kilkenny Cory centre is small and all the sights are easily accessible by walking

So I would call this a generous 3 stars. If twee music and scant facts is your thing... hop on board! You see a few interesting things and it helps you get your bearings but honestly, there are more effective ways of seeing Kilkenny.

A very friendly and welcoming driver. The half hour trip was a good introduction to the main attractions and their history interspersed with traditional music. It helped orientate us to what was where and decide which attractions to explore further.
