Mini guide to Waterford


When most people think of the verdant green landscapes of Ireland, they imagine somewhere like Waterford, situated in the southeast of the country and surrounded by lush river valleys and a dramatic coastline. Waterford is also famous for its crystal, and there are also plenty of opportunities for playing golf, cycling, walking and horseback riding. The beaches are extremely clean here, and it is also an ideal spot for anglers.

The city was established in the days of the Vikings and has a noticeable medieval feel to it. There are intriguing narrow alleyways leading off the main streets, and a constant hum of activity at the port.

There are several churches, museums and other centres that are worth visiting in town, as well as a few remains of the old city walls, built by the Vikings over 1,000 years ago. Two cathedrals in particular stand out for their architectural merits - Christchurch and Holy Trinity.

Other attractions include: the Waterford Crystal Visitor Centre, Waterford Treasures at the Granary, the Lismore Heritage Centre and the Tipperary South Riding County Museum. There are also a couple of towers that are very ancient, including the Watch Tower near Railway Square, and the Half Moon Tower on Patrick Street.

The city's most famous product, crystal glass, can be seen at the Waterford Crystal Glass Factory, which welcomes visitors for tours of the production area.

Apart from regular hotels and bed-and-breakfasts, accommodation options include castle hotels and caravan parks. There is plenty of choice when it comes to eating as well, with fish being the local speciality, though there are vegetarian restaurants too.

There is a good road system connecting Waterford with other important towns in Ireland like Cork, Wexford and Dublin. If you don't have your own car, you can travel around on local Bus Eireann services. The train is another option, with connections to Dublin, Rosslare and Limerick. The nearest airports are at Cork and Dublin.
