Waterford Suir Valley Railway brings the magic of rails golden age to life in Kilmeadan, County Waterford. Step back in time to 1878, check in at the ticket office, a converted Mark 11 railway carriage at the beautifully restored Kilmeadan Station. Chat to the friendly train drivers while being escorted to a private compartment on the train. Hear the whistle blow as the train departs on a nostalgic journey through Waterford’s Suir Valley, an area rich in history and only accessible by train and the Waterford Greenway.
This railway trip is fun and educational. Travelling at a gentle pace, enjoy wonderful views through partially open carriages of the river Suir and the rolling Waterford countryside. A brief stop at the Magic Woods is a highlight for the children with a chance to make a wish as they spot the fairies. Journey though a 40 meter tunnel under the N25. You also get a glimpse in to the world famous Mount Congreve Gardens. Younger children enjoy the excitement of being on a train and relate to the smaller carriages, little diesel engine and narrow gauge track. The 17km round trip takes 50 minutes as the train travels at 16km per hour.
The train is divided in to 10 individual compartments so the children can stay in their pods with their teacher.
