Cost is 20 euro for family of 4. Great commentary, interesting historical tour as well as fun. Really would recommend this trip.

Kilkenny is only a city by virtue of having a cathedral. It's merely a town, and very manageable on foot. Americans will dig this cutsie train though.

We enjoyed the tour of Kilkenny with audio guide, and the range of Irish music was popular with the grandparents!

We loved the "choo choo" express train. We decided to do this on our first day to get a feel for the place. We got it just outside the Design Centre, opposite the main entrance to the Castle. It took us all around Kilkenny to see the main attractions in the city and it had a running commentary on the historical significance of each place. It took roughly 1 hour with traffic but we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It also allowed us to plan what we wanted to do and in what order for the rest of our visit to Kilkenny. It was really good value too. You buy your ticket on the train from the train driver.

This was a very enjoyable experience and our guide was very good. Although with some of the sites on the route there was no chance to stop at the actual site. So maybe there should be a hop on hop off option incorporated into the tour.
