I always try and find a railway whilst on holiday and visiting somewhere different. There are no full size preserved railways in Ireland, but this narrow gauge railway runs along part of the old Waterford,Dungarvan and Lismore railway which was set up in 1872. The return journey lasts about 50 minutes or so. If you go on a Saturday, the... More

The Waterford and Suir Valley Railway is a 45ish minute trip through the countryside, along the banks of the river Suir. The trip itself is very scenic and the kids love the train. There isnt a huge amount to see (for the kids) but they did love the trip. Tip - sit in the last carrage. It is enclosed which... More

We visited the railway with our 2 young children on a Sunday afternoon. When we arrived, there was somebody from an owl welfare charity displaying a number of different owls in a sectioned off area near the railway. It was nice to see owls from so close and the real bonus was that one of my daughters was given the... More

Enjoyed the trip on what looks like a toy train; lovely views along the banks of the Suir river. It would help if there was a welcome, and introductory talk, with some commentary during the stops. The carriage is noisy and rattles along. The 'restaurant' carriage had only coffee and biscuits - the nice lady suggested we go to a... More

This little train is a cute attraction just outside Waterford. It lolls through lovely countryside mostly along the banks of the river Suir and is so soothing it put one of our children to sleep. Along the 45 minute ride the train slows down so that the kids can look out to one side for fairies and fairy houses built... More

A 40 min train ride on a deserted track through a magic forest and alongside the river Suir - Great for kids, they loved it and well priced just of the roundabout towards Waterford bypass.

I loved this whole experience. This little gem is manned by volunteers and brings the old fashioned rail journey to life again. Well worth the visit.

Nice, small train ride along the river Suir. About 40 minutes, no commentary. Food is available at the depot as well as WCs. Not the best ride, but scenery is OK.
