The magic of rails golden age has been brought to life in Kilmeadan, Co Waterford. Experience the beauty of the Suir Valley from a narrow gauge railway in partially open period carriages as you take in the panoramic views of the river and rolling farmland. This is an area rich in history and only accessible by train. Great fun for all ages.

A large group of friends ranging from toddler to pensioner greatly enjoyed our trip along the Waterford & Suir Valley Railway. Plenty of parking spaces, welcoming waiting "room" and friendly staff. Long enough to keep everyone's interest as we passed various land-marks, but not so long it became boring! Recommended ...

We had a lovely afternoon as a family of two adults and two children at this narrow gauge railway. The cost of a family ticket was very reasonable at €21, and the trip lasted about three quarters of an hour or just thereabouts for the return journey. It is a quaint trip in a miniature train with the option of... More

I took my parents here - maybe I should have taken my grandchildren! However the volunteers are kind and enthusiastic. The line runs along the lower reaches of the Suir River towards Waterford, running through woodland. Part of this has been transformed into a faerie village. There is a cafe in a disused carriage - shame they only serve instant... More

We have 3 train loving boys and this was a great hour out. Even enjoyable for adults too as the tracks go along the river and has some beautiful views. Goes every hour or so - check the times before arriving.

First visit to this fab restored railway. It's a wonderful trip & very reasonably priced. The ticket office/ coffee shop is a restored rail car & captures the spirit of the experience perfectly. It's is a pleasant experience for adults & children alike. One of the stops along the way is at a "fairy village" with fairy's & their houses... More

If you are looking for a family day out this is a very nice place and is just outside Waterford City . Old style small guage train brings you on a 55 minute round trip down the side of the motorway towards the toll bridge and back . The scenery along the river is stunning and cannot be seen from...

This forty minute round trip small guage (3ft) train ride is fun and when complete will be superb! As it is, it is a fun way to spend a morning. Departing from Kilmeaden, just a few miles from Waterford City the journey takes the visitor towards Waterford though it currently stops shy of the city. Most of the seats are... More

Old carriage being used as ticket office and coffee shop. Toilet facilities were spotless. Boarded the train. In colder weather it can be quite chilly so make sure you have jackets. Tour lasted about 20 mins each way and the train stopped in a wood where there were faeries for the children and some adults to wonder at. Passed a... More

Took our 3 year olds in this this October mid term. They are big into trains so this was a big hit. Its a 40 minute round trip along the suir. The fairy fort in the forest is a nice little touch. We enjoyed it & was reasonable at 8.50 per adult & children free. Recommended
