This was a 30 minute tour of the town that went to many important sites. The bus was comfortable and the carriage was covered in case of rain. The actual tour guide was a recording that wasn't totally clear at all times. The cost was E8.50 for a senior. It was a nice experience.

Wherever my wife and I have gone in Europe we always make a point of taking a round city bus tour. This gives us a look at the sites and marks out those for a longer visit. Kilkenny is not a large city so the tour is shorter than most...about 30 minutes...but it takes you through some if oldest streets which are only wide enough for the road train to navigate. A commentary plays at the main sites and between them some well known Irish songs are played for a bit of a sing song.

Paul was an amazing driver, very friendly. The tour itself was not mindblowing, but still fun. It is a cute town. Thanks, Paul!
