This is a good day trip from Dublin to view some scenic countryside and visit too historic cities in Ireland. There is early departure from Dublin Hueston station but a comfortable train ride to Kilkenny. The main attraction here is the Kilkenny Castle which has interesting history and largely restored. Across the street is the Fashion Design center that is worth a visit and has a nice pastry and food service restaurant. A good place to take a rest before going back to the train station to catch the train to waterford. This is scenic trip as well and Waterford is very interesting in the history of Ireland. The main attraction is the Waterford Crystal factory where you see the making of crystal from the moulding of the crystal design, to the blowing of the crystal into mould, and on to the cutting of the crystal into beautiful pieces. After this there is rather long train ride back to Dublin, but you will see some beautiful countryside and enjoy a relaxing ride on the train. A day trip worth taking if you visit Ireland.
I really enjoyed this trip. Liam was our guide and he was great. Liam took time to show us maps and go over all the details, he walked us through a lovely church and introduced us to the local butcher as we walked into Kilkenny. The short train ride around town was really fun and a great way to see the town without walking. We did not tour the inside of the castle, there wasn't enough time, I think I would have enjoyed that if we had time but it would have made the day probably too long. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the Waterford Crystal tour, it is just amazing to see the craftsmanship involved in producing their crystal. I have such a greater appreciation of their crystal products. The town of Waterford was lovely and we had time to walk around with Liam and have a delicious lunch at a local restaurant. It was a very long day by the time we got back to Dublin but it was very relaxing to go by train and overall very enjoyable. The guided tour takes all the guesswork out of planing and figuring out the trains on your own, plus Liam is full of knowledge and made the trip much better than it would have been on our own.
This was a great tour with an added variety with it being based off travel on a rail line. Our guide was Paddy, and he did a great job providing us an overview of the trip at the initial start of the trip and giving us details throughout the trip. We thoroughly enjoyed having the different pace on the rail vs the bus tours that we had done up to that point. I would highly recommend this trip to everyone!
From the time we met our guide Paddy at the Heuston train station early on the morning of our trip, until we returned that evening.
We felt we were in good hands. Beautiful scenery and interesting places to visit. Paddy was both witty and informative.
