So I would call this a generous 3 stars. If twee music and scant facts is your thing... hop on board! You see a few interesting things and it helps you get your bearings but honestly, there are more effective ways of seeing Kilkenny.

A very friendly and welcoming driver. The half hour trip was a good introduction to the main attractions and their history interspersed with traditional music. It helped orientate us to what was where and decide which attractions to explore further.

This trip is good for mobility challenged folk and children. It takes a good half hour. Recorded commentary is informative. Folksy music encourages a singalong. Carriages are comfortable enough and weather proof. Worth a try but can involve queuing so get there earlier than departure...More
