WSVR Open for Mid-Term Break
We are delighted to announce Waterford Suir Valley Railway will re-open for the mid-term break from 19th to 27th February.
You can now book your tickets online www.wsvrailway.ie/book-tickets/
The train carriages have been divided into compartments so each party/family will have a private compartment. The compartments are named after the stations on the abandoned Waterford, Dungarvan & Lismore Railway.
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 Waterford Greenway. Travelling at a gentle pace, enjoy wonderful views through partially open carriages of the river Suir and the rolling Waterford and Kilkenny countryside.
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 while adults may prefer the glimpse in to the award-winning Mount Congreve Gardens. Learn how this social enterprise, celebrates the rich history of rail and preserves it for future generations to enjoy.
Wrap up well as this is an open air experience and it can be chilly in the open carriages.
The Whistlestop Café is open for refreshments and snacks. Enjoy Blue Butterfly Coffee, a selection of hot and cold teas, smoothies, Kilmeaden Bake’s treats, Market Stall Sandwiches and ice cream.
We are really looking forward to welcoming both our railway and Waterford Greenway customers to Kilmeadan Station for 2022.
