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.

After a weekend in Waterford we were driving back to Cork when I saw a sign for the railway. As I have an interest in railway history I thought it would be nice to have a look at the station. Without knowing it was half term, the railway was actually running that day so we decided to have a trip... More

The Suir Valley Railway became the Santa train and was well worth the visit. The train takes you on a 20mins journey and stops for a visit from Mrs. Claus and Frosty the snowman. They even provided snow. Then back to the station to meet Santa in his Grotto and receive a lovely present. My 3 year old was thrilled.... More

The journey lasts 40 mins although you might spend up to 2 hours there if you take advantage of kids entertainment or use the café ( an... More
