We arranged a town tour with Pat Tynan. What we didn't expect was the AMAZING tour with Colm. Our group of high school graduates loved his presentation, and the overall tour. Visiting local haunts made for a very special experience. Colm with guitar was the absolute bonus for our group!

Me and my boyfriend took the tour around kilkenny in this colourful train and were pleased with experience. First of all the train driver was a very happy and pleasant man and we got all sorts of discounts and vouchers for other attractions around the city all included in our tour payment. We learned alot about the history and got to see the modern city aswell as we made our way up high st and around. Definently a must do in this city. Educational and enjoyable

Good value for money. Ivan, the tour guide was super, very friendly and approachable. Tour lasted about 25mins and took us around the city of Kilkenny; it is not a hop on hop off type of tour.. The audio that accompanied the tour might be hard to hear for those with hearing difficulties The journey was also a bit bumpy due to the cobble stone streets and speed-bumps. But overall a very enjoyable and insightful experience for the young and old alike. J

We have toured other cities in Europe on similar trains. They are all great. What makes this operator/tour great is the very helpful staff, who assisted with additional information, a couple of stops for pictures etc. He went out of this way to be helpful, polite and curious. Just that bit better than the others.
