It was a really fun way to see some of the important sites of Kilkenny. The train ride was smooth, took about 30 minutes, had opportunities for lots of good pictures. Our captain, Paul, was super friendly and accommodating as well. We had a blast.

Only major fault I found was trying to get into some of the seats when its quite full, for me at 73 it was a work of art, having said that, the tour was fun, informative and interesting and we saw so much more that if we just walked, the price was reasonable, glad we did it, made me realise I'm quite double jointed. But would still do it again.

We had visited the castle and had a soda and shopped and still had some time left, so we decided to go on the tour train. I loved riding the open air tram. We got to see some beautiful sights and learned quite a bit about beautiful Kilkenny. I love hearing the history of a place from someone who lives there and takes pride in their town. The driver was funny, too, and his high spirits were infectious! This tour is well worth the 7 Euros!

A great way to beat a short walking tour.I did see things that would have been missed by just wandering.
