It's a cute little train, but we expected it to take us past the 20 ish highlights of the town. It's only goes past a couple, the audio on the train is poor and the windows are small so the visibility is poor. Not worth the 7 euros for the 20 ride. Don't waste your money

The Castle Express can be caught just outside of the main castle gates. Its a fun ride that takes you to many of the places that you would not normally see. Its especially good in fine weather and then afterwards you can grab a cake and a cup of coffee.

This was a lot of fun and very informational. A train with approx 4 cars take you and your family around the city and passes all of the sites. Grab a pastry at the Kilkenny design centre cafe and sit back and enjoy the ride.

One day I was visiting Kilkenny Castle and decided to take the Castle Express...and it was great! I saw a lot of things that I had not seen by walking to the various places I had visited. It was a beautiful sunny day with a slight breeze and I could have ridden around the town all day! Take the time to do it...you won't be sorry!

Absolutely loved the ride around the city and seeing some of the old sights. The music was fun and it was nice to sit and hear the stories behind the sites.
