  Suir Valley
by SabrinaSummerville

The Waterford and Suir Valley railway route follows just six kilometres of abandoned railway track along one of the most beautiful scenic routes in County Waterford. The railway carriages that follow the route are restored historical carriages and some of themn are partially open.

It's a lovely little trip and allows you to see parts of this area that are inaccessible to other traffic.

If you like they can organise special events and cater for group bookings.

They do a champgne sunset express during the summer months, a Santa express at Christmas time, and a Spooky Express at Halloween.

Fares are ?7.50 for an adult and ?3.50 for a child, with special discounted Golden Years and Family fares.

There's a mini restored engine museum at the station and believe it or not the ticket office itself is a restored carriage!

In my opinion, one of the nicest things about this project is that it's a registered charity.
