Totally worthwhile tour, 8 Euro each for half an hour which gives you a history of Kilkenny through Cromwells siege, the Black Death/famine and a concise history of any of the remarkable architecture. Very friendly and helpful staff who went out of their way to be helpful and pleasant

When we arrived in Kilkenny, Ivan was waiting for our group and we set off on our journey. The commentary was good and very interesting. We went into some very narrow passages and on some busy roads. Everyone in our group thoroughly enjoyed the trip
Thank you Ivan

I recently took the city tour train in Kilkenny. It was a very enjoyable and informative experience. The tour guide was extremely nice and accommodating he couldn't have done enough for us his personality shone through. He was perfect for the job. Just a shame I didn't get his name so I could personally mention him.

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.
