While on tour, we had a three hour stop in Kilkenny. This bus is a great opportunity to see quickly the city. Though we had no stops, we were able to take good pictures. A great plus is ability to open the window. The driver was very sweet!

The driver was very friendly, cheerful and helpful. The trip gave the most informative tour of all the ones we took whilst travelling Ireland. Find them by Kilkenny castle and have a comfortable fun tour!

A very cute way to get a summary of the city's history and tourist locations. Specially if you only have a short time, the short 30 minute tour is highly recommended.

Interesting, informative and, on the occasion we were there, an entertaining and pleasant driver. It takes you on a good half hour tour taking in a lot of important sites and most of... More

Nice train tour around the city. Well worth the 5 euro to see the highlights of Kilkenny. The audio guide was well timed and the weather was perfect.
