Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great start to our visit to get our bearings. We had a long chat with the driver first who was very entertaining and seemed to know everyone as we drove around. The commentary is recorded but was very informative and interesting.

Catch the first train at 9:30, lots of room then you’ll have rest of day to walk over and visit all the sites. Ask for Ronnie, best driver and Tour guide ever

Really enjoyed this train ride around the city, very informative and you get to see a lot. Ronnie our driver was brilliant, great laugh and very good at driving.
Train leaves outside the castle and the trip is 30min long. Songs in between history talk.
Well worth it!

The highlight of our trip to Kilkenny. The driver was funny, interactive and informative. This is an activity for both adults and children. The tour was equipped with audio explanation and lovely Irish music throughout.

We enjoyed a late morning ride on the Kilkenny Road Train. The stop was outside the Castle so just a short walk from our hotel. The train runs approximately every half an hour starting at 9.30am The ride lasts about 30 minutes and takes in the main sites of Kilkenny. While travelling along a running commentary gives information. In between Irish music was played which was lovely! A very enjoyable way to see Kilkenny!

We thought that this was an attraction aimed at children only but were delighted to see plenty if adults boarding.
The trip takes about 30 minutes to travel around the main historical sites of Kilkenny and an on board commentary gives you plenty of information about each one. Between sites the driver plays a selection of Irish songs which everyone knows and joins in.
In the oldest part of the city some of the streets are very narrow.

From the moment we boarded the train the fun began. I wish more cities had this type of tour. We were able to go down the narrow streets and see so many things we would have missed. I would not hesitate to recommend this fantastic was of seeing the city.

Honestly from the start to finish it was a fantastic trip that didn’t cost the world. As it was raining it was a great way to see the sights and get a feel for where everything was later in the day when we went for a ramble. Our guide was very friendly. Lovely way to see the city in such a short amount of time.
