Cliff was a very good guide along the river trip. Interesting history about bridges and the Castle. Didn't see any kingfishers.

Not much to see along the river however the castle is spectacular and Ann Marie was a lovely host, very knowledgeable about the area. We were a family of 5 with 3 kids aged 12,9&5 and they got a shot of steering the boat which they loved. The trip lasts about 35 or so mins and is something different to do when visiting Kilkenny on a sunny day. It cost €50 so reasonable value for money.

Relaxing and informative boat tour. The guide had lots of surprising stories from the city's past. Well worth the price.
