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.
Great Day!

We had an amazing trip to Waterford with Paddy as our guide. He was knowledgeable, so informative and we felt like we were in good hands the entire time. He even helped us flag a cab down at the end of the trip we had been standing in the wrong place!. The Waterford factory is amazing! The train was clean and fast and gave us a chance to see the beautiful countryside. Recommend it for sure!

This was a wonderful trip! Our guide, Brian, was both knowledgeable and personable. Our group was relatively small for this tour and we all ended up being friends. That means everyone - tourists and the guide. We exchanged stories and photos of families.
Brian went way beyond the normal guide information. He was giving backgrounds to all of the places we visited and he prepared us for them so we would be able to absorb everything upon arrival.
I highly recommend this tour especially if you are fortunate enough to get the same guide.

We had a great day and the weather was excellent. The train trip was fun but be aware there's a lot of walking. Plenty of time to shop at the Waterford Gallery. Our train to Limerick cancelled so we took a bus through small towns which was interesting and then a train to Dublin. Very smooth operation and I recommend the tour company to you. There were eleven in our tour which was just right. Some days there are over 30. Long day but worth it.

Great tour, friendly and efficient guide. The tour of the workshop was fantastic and being able to see many pieces of work was a great experience.

The trip to Kilkenny and Waterford was wonderful. Paddy was our guide, obviously proud of his country and a wealth of information. To be fair, the weather was ideal only a little mist for a few minutes and we had a nice, small group. Friendly folks helped a long day go by quickly. The rail experience is definitely a great way to travel. Saw the beautiful Irish countryside along the way. Loved the Waterford factory tour, very interesting to watch the craftsman at work, and they are happy to answer any questions. No hard sell on the way out, but a nice opportunity to make purchases.

The rides were beautiful and Liam was a great guide. This tour by design makes stops and takes you around to show more of the region. If you like bucolic scenes and pastoral vistas from a train window, do this. If you just want to get to Waterford and back, you have more efficient options.

This tour was great and our guide, Liam, was the best! Waterford tour was so interesting and we had time to stroll through village on our own. Kilkenny was just charming. Taking the rail mixed it up from the standard bus tour and was more relaxing.

Paddy MacArdle our tour guide was fantastic! He made the tour with his knowledge and humor, we thoroughly enjoyed! The Train ride was beautiful as we got to see the country side. The town of Kilkenny was both beautiful and charming. We enjoyed the road train tour around the old town and Kilkenny castle tour. We had an nice lunch at a local pub in Waterford. Have a new appreciation for Waterford Crystal after seeing the tour of how its made!

Wonderful day tour - perfect places to visit and time allocation
One Caveat - the return train trip too long with the route back to Dublin via Limerick.
The guide - Liam - the BEST!!! He is the best guide and most wonderful person you want to be with on a tour.
Great experience

Amazing tour! The Waterford Crystal tour was great; highly recommend! The place we stopped for lunch had delicious food compared to some of the restaurants we stopped at for other tours. The train service was very comfortable and easy to navigate with the guides. Overall, a great day!

Very lovely. I had no intention on buying anything. I had everything shipped to the USA for a very small sum... The staff never once pressed me into buying anything. They were just present to answer questions.

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.

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.
