We were the only 2 people on this tour as it was in mid January and we couldnt have caught better weather! It was great as it turned out to be a personal tour of Kilkenny Castle and also a small tour at Waterford Crystal Factory of about 8 people where we actually got to interact with the people working at Waterford Factory as well as handle some of the famous trophies and statues.
Liam was a most fantastic guide and just a great person. We had an incredible visit and are looking to return!
The tour started at the train station. Once we checked in they took care of everything. Liam was our guide. He was
wonderful and the trip was great! We really enjoyed it.
I would highly recommend this tour. The tours that we booked thru Viator, were conducted by Rail Tours. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO TAKE A TOUR. We were treated like Royalty. We were accompanied throughout the entire tour, which was wonderful. , We had reserved seats on the train portions of the tour, so we were always able to sit together. They provided taxi service where necessary. This was a very wonderful experience.
A full day of travel, beauty, information and history - this tour was fabulous! And our tour guide, Liam, was the BEST!!!
This tour was wonderful from start to finish. Our tour guide Liam was a wonderful and funny man with LOTS of energy and spunk. We were a small group of five and he made sure we were having a great time. Everything was well timed and organized. Kilkenny castle was breathtaking and the little street train around Kilkenny was lots of fun. The tour of Waterford Crystal was very informative and interesting. The pieces they make are absolutely stunning. Its definitely worth the extra money to do a rail tour. It was very peaceful and beautiful. My 8 year old son who is obsessed with trains was overjoyed with the experience. If you take this tour, I hope you get Liam as your guide. He is incredible.
Our tour guide was so knowledgeable. Waterford was lovely as well as Kilkenny.
This was a good trip. The Waterford tour was very interesting. The train trip through the country side was beautiful and made for a relaxing day. We were even audience to a couple of locals who knew we were all tourist and they broke into song It's a long way to Tipperary. It was a fun day....a bit of walking though...so wear comfy shoes......
Liam was awesome. We had basically a private tour, it was just my mother, myself and the tour guide. Liam was extremely knowledgeable and personable. We loved the Kilkenny castle and the tour of the Waterford Crystal factory.
The train trip mas nothing short of amazing. Seeing the lush landscape and farms was a dream come true. Out tour guide was courteous, entertaining, protective and most of all informed on all of our destinations I highly recommend this tour.
Highly recommended even though it was a long day. The demonstration given at Waterford Crystal on how they make their product is very worthwhile and the train ride through the countryside was very welcomed.
One of the highlights of our trip. Kilkenny is a great small town with lots of interesting historical facts. The trolley tour was great. One of the best castles in Ireland.
The tour guides were helpful from start to finish! He even changed our train tickets so that we could spend more time in Waterford by ourselves since the tour was scheduled to leave earlier than we wanted to. We LOVED Kilkenny but it was a Bank Holiday and most of the shops were closed, we wanted to go back but couldn't find the time. We didn't have enough time to really explore Waterford after the crystal tour and shopping but the tour is well worth the time that it took!
Kilkenny was great. Took the train tour which allows one to see the sights from a more personal level. The crystal factory was incredible. Again, the Irish people are wonderful, the driver and guide were great.
We had a great time on this tour! Paddy is a wonderful, knowledgeable guide, and kept everything running smoothly. Personally, I would have liked to spend more time in Kilkenny only had time to see the castle, and not the design center, instead of spending the afternoon doing the scenic train ride between Waterford and Limerick Junction. The scenery was nice, but at that time in the afternoon, everyone fell asleep! However, everything else about the tour was great, and I would definitely recommend it.
The trip was FANTASTIC!! Out tour guide made the trip even better. We had a small delay, no fault of the tour, and our guide made even that unimposing. You have a great employee there, don't loose him. As for the tour, it was everything we had hoped for and more. No changes recommended. I will travel again and use your business. A big thank you to your company.
the waterford crystal factory tour was great. unbelievable workmanship. the viking relics could have been emphasized as we were interested in the viking influence in this region.
This was like a private tour!! There were 9 of us and the tour guide Patty. He was brilliant! He was very imformative and very attentive. Could not have had a better time!
This day trip was excellent. It was very organized, educational and a lot of fun! Our tour guide Paddy M. was amazing. He is so informative about the sites, history and fun facts. We had the best day.
Liam our guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable of the histories, traditions and stories of the Irish people. The trains were clean, in good working order and a comfortable ride. Excwllent value. The yellow jackets make them easy to find and follow. Lunch in Waterford was great! Bill and Stacy Kast
Great trip. We were the only people and the tour guide, Paddy McArdle was so attentive and considerate. 20 minute walk through Kilkenny to the castle which is so full of Irish history. Road train through the town with commentary and return to castle and design center which was full of great Irish treasures.
This was a great tour.Brian Scott is a very knowledgeable tour guide and is able to relate an unbelievable amount of history. The pub lunch at your own expense was one of the best meals I had on this trip. The Waterford tour was impressive. The only negative is I would have liked to have the time to tour Kilkenny Castle.
Paddy was the best!! So nice and very knowledgeable. it was great having reserved seats on the train and to have him be right there with any questions. I would certainly recommend this trip to anyone.
