We were the only people on the tour, it was fairly quick, 30 minutes, and perhaps a little more commentary would have helped. But for 8 euros each, good value, and will fill a gap if you have one.

A fun way to see the city in brief for old and young alike... Particularly enjoyed the cheerful sing-along music, amusing guide and winding trip through the narrow walled road around St Canice's Cathedral... Laughed the whole way...

This is a fun little way to get around and see some of the sights in Kilkenny. You can pick it up every half hour or so near the castle. Take a load off you feet and go for the ride.
