My husband & I were travelling throughout Ireland with our tour group with Gate 1 Travel and we stopped in Kilkenny for a morning break before heading on to Dublin for several days. Most of the group purchased tickets to ride the Kilkenny City Train hosted by our guide & driver, Paul. Oh, what a sly character he was! Sly in a good way and a big flirt! He flirted with the older ladies in our group and told some hilarious jokes prior to our departure. The City Tour started at Kilkenny Castle and lasted for 30 minutes. While on board we heard about the fastinating insight into the history of Kilkenny.

Booked 2 tickets for the tourist train for Saturday 9th Nov. Only for we got there early and seen the train parked outside the castle,went up to the guy and he asked where we got the tickets as they were finished for the season, we were not informed of any changes to the running schedule. Needless to say we were were very disappointed only upside was the guy gave us a full refund there and then.

We had lots of craic with Paul on the Kilkenny City Tours. Paul was very witty, informative and enthusiastic. Giving us so many interesting tidbits about Kilkenny and a map of the city when the tour was over. People were calling out to him as we drove by made you feel you were so welcomed in Kilkenny. Highly recommend would of loved to have had more time with Paul and his enthusiastic and very interesting stories. Thank you Paul for such a warm welcome to Kilkenny. You are always welcome to come visit Canada 🇨🇦

Jumped on the train after seeing the castle for about an hour. Our driver was crazy funny and really added to the experience.....you can tell he really likes his job. Drove around the city for about 20 min and listened to a pre-recorded audio about various parts of the city. Well worth doing.
