Before you start walking around Kilkenny, take the time to enjoy this 30 minute train tour. Or driver, Paul, did an excellent job. Extremely informative. Once you take the tour then you can better plan your activities. Very nicely done. Thank you!

This was one of the highlights of Kilkenny for us. Very well run and priced. A great way to see the city and driving down some of those narrow streets, great fun. It takes about 30 minutes and I would definitely highly recommend it.

The little tourist road train around the town of Kilkenny is well worth your time (30 minutes), especially if you can catch a live tour with Paul. He was so funny and made the medieval history so interesting!

seats are quite small and narrow so I'd say that it can be not comfy enough for person to move from wheelchair (to the train) but if it's not a problem and questions is if there is place to leave folded wheelchair, it should... More
