When in Irelands oldest city you must visit the oldest civic building in the country too.
With Covid restrictions in place the displaces have been removed so that there is only an informative film left for you to watch on the top floor along with the building itself. As such its currently free to enter.
The staff are a wealth of information , just watch your head on the low ceilings and stone work

Currently many of the old artefacts are not housed here so it's free entry. We turned up just as they were closing but they kindly let us in so we dashed up to the top and had a quick look at everything.
It's quite a tough climb to the top on windy, steep steps

So glad we went. While the artifacts were not there (having conservation work done), we still enjoyed exploring the tower. The OPW had waived the admission fee because of that. Very enjoyable! Video gave a nice concise history of the settlement.

We visited Reginald's Tower in April as part of our 2 week Ireland holiday . Named after the Viking ho founded Waterford , it is an imposing structure that you cannot really miss if you strolling around the waterfront.

There is a parking area across the road , so easily accessible along with a few other well known landmarks like the Clocktower.

Worth a quick short visit especially if you into Viking history

Currently interest is free because most of the artifacts in the building are in Dublin for preservation. The building is certainly very old and very cool to go through. The video on the top floor is informative. Even with the artifacts present I don’t know that I would separately pay five euros to visit but I think as part of the bigger museum package it is well worth it. All staff were very friendly during our visit

While many of their displays were on temporary at the national museum (and entry was temporarily Free for that reason), the building itself is well worth visiting.

Reginald’s tower is a landmark in Waterford and unfortunately it’s closed due to Covid restrictions at present. It’s a great photo opportunity and you can read the history of the Tower.

Not open at the time I was there but this is a very beautiful defensive tower, and also the landmark in Waterford. It is possible to visit inside.

Reginalds Tower is a stunning defensive tower at the apex of the Viking Trianlge in Waterford. As other reviews have said here already it is currently closed for renovations but it is still absolutely worth visiting just to see it's exterior and of course the wooden boat monument beside it.
I fully intend to come back and see the interior when it reopens but don't let the fact that you cant climb ut stop you from walking along to where the quays turn to see it.
