We love history, and didn't know much about this town, so coming to Reginald's Tower was a nice hour for us. Loved seeing artifacts from centuries ago. Staff at the front were very friendly and gave us some information, including recommending starting from the top and work your way down. Our 4 year old loved walking through the old winding... More

This is also a must see when in Waterford. The history is documented for those of you who are interested in the history.

We happened to arrive on a day they were offering free admission which was quite nice. Check the OPW website for these days. My kids were intrigued by the cannon ball lodged in the outside wall from so many years ago. Video they show is quite informational.

This is a remnant of the city wall and is an intact watch tower. You can climb to the top..my daughter did and said that the view was great. There are some exhibits to look at on the ground floor, including a model of the town as it was.

This tour was interesting and I was happy to be able to enter the tower that is so central to Waterford. Learned history about the historic city and saw artifacts

Great insight into the history of Waterford. This is a short stop but you learn quite a lot. It is in inexpensive. This is not an amenity for anyone with mobility issues, narrow door ways and uneven staircases as it is a very old building.

We came here because it was a Heritage Site, even though it was not that impressive from the outside. However, we took the tour and had an excellent guide. He gave us a fascinating tale of history behind the tower that made it all come alive. It was so interesting to see all the archeological findings they have on display,... More

This is a must-see for a history buff. The artifacts and documents are well displayed. A short movie is played. We did not have a guide, none was offered when we visited. The stairs are winding but not too narrow.
