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.

Very interesting and informative tour. The guide had a great knowledge of the local area, which is so steeped in history and a tribute to times past. The scenery was breath-taking from the bridges to the old railway buildings. The time on the tour seemed to pass quickly and it was a fantastic way to spend a morning, out in the fesh air getting the steps in.

I had a wonderful time with my first ever walking tour experience. I have learned so much about Kilmacthomas - thanks to the amazing Stiófán. He is very knowledgeable and sensitive to his listeners. Also, he is an excellent storyteller and he has the magic that will let you relive the past. Moreover, I like the quiet moments he gave to simply feel and appreciate the place. The Irish sun was out so it was a BONUS. I highly recommend this tour to all

Francis, It was a joy being able to entertain you on your first ever guided walking tour. Thank you so much for this complimentary review and lovely photo of the curved viaduct bridge. I'm so glad you enjoyed the three quiet moments of mindfulness too. We were really blessed with the weather as it was a "calm before a storm" type day, crisp clear skies and lovely Irish sunshine. Thanks again. Stíofán, the Tour guide.

I thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour with Stephen. We were blessed with sunshine on the day and got to see the beautiful countryside of Kilmacthomas and hear all about the history of the area. The scenery on the greenway is really lovely. We saw two mice getting up to mischief in the hedges which was so cute! Stephen is a very friendly engaging and approachable tour guide and there were lots of laughs along the way. Stephen has extensive knowledge of the area and his love and admiration for his home place really shines through in his storytelling and anecdotes. I would highly recommend the tour to anyone wanting to spend a few hours walking in scenic countryside while learning about Kilmacthomas, the history of the workhouse, the paupers grave and so much more!

We went as a group of adults, the day was dry (that helps :-) ). The landscape is lovely, the stories are very interesting and entertaining. The story teller/guide is captivating and engaging. We were told about Irish history, facts about the vegetation around and even some architecture facts. We had also some time to admire the surroundings and practice some mindfulness.
The pace was not too fast or too slow, he adapted to our group.
I really enjoyed it!

It was a beautiful morning, weather was lovely and the tour guide was very entertaining. A leisurely stroll around Kilmacthomas starting on the Waterford Greenway and looping back through the village to the Greenway. Just long enough to enjoy and short enough not to tire of walking. Stephen was pleasant and informative, giving little anecdotes of history and folklore along the way. He is passionate about the area and it's history and it shines through. All in all a very enjoyable experience that I would highly recommend.

We had an excellent tour with Stiofán as part of a Greenway course I was doing. It was so interesting learning all about the local history and architecture of the area and how it all connects to different events and parts of the world.
I would highly recommend doing this his tour if you are in the area. As a near local, it gave me a completely different perspective of an amenity that’s on my doorstep. Very enjoyable

My wife and I recently spent nearly 3 hours with Stiofan learning about the history as well as the flora, fauna and geology of Kilmacthomas. Stiofan was very knowledgeable and was a pleasure to learn from. I highly recommend this tour!
