Absolutely loved the ride around the city and seeing some of the old sights. The music was fun and it was nice to sit and hear the stories behind the sites.

“perfect for the lazy people among us...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

Kilkenny is only a city by virtue of having a cathedral. It's merely a town, and very manageable on foot. Americans will dig this cutsie train though.

“Great land train”

We enjoyed the tour of Kilkenny with audio guide, and the range of Irish music was popular with the grandparents!

“A great start to visiting Kilkenny”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

We loved the "choo choo" express train. We decided to do this on our first day to get a feel for the place. We got it just outside the Design Centre, opposite the main entrance to the Castle. It took us all around Kilkenny to see the main attractions in the city and it had a running commentary on the historical significance of each place. It took roughly 1 hour with traffic but we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It also allowed us to plan what we wanted to do and in what order for the rest of our visit to Kilkenny. It was really good value too. You buy your ticket on the train from the train driver.
