Visiting Waterford City



Waterford City, County Waterford in the  South of the country, boasts a commanding presence next to the meandering River Suir. A hotbed of history and heritage, this strikingly beautiful city was founded by the Vikings in 853AD and experienced a further exciting architectural overhaul during its 18th Century expansion. 
Despite it being one of Ireland’s oldest, Waterford City is a fabulous blend of ultra-modern shopping centres, pedestrianised walkways, lively traditional pubs and highly acclaimed gourmet restaurants. And the city promises to delight and impress the senses without relinquishing its unique local spirit.
It’s not without its world-renowned attractions, too. Home to the exquisite Waterford Crystal, not many visitors return home without acquiring some hand-blown glass perfection.
But Waterford City isn’t just about the architecture and crystal, it has a long theatrical and musical tradition. The Waterford Light Opera Festival, Waterford Spraoi Festival and the Hullabaloo International Children’s Festival are sure to put a spring in the step of people of all ages, making this one of the most vibrant cities in the country to sojourn for a few days or more.
