This was neat!

We thought this was a fun little attraction. Did not take us long to go through but was a fun piece of history in Waterford.

A short well worth visit. It won't take longer than 40mins but it's a must on the historical trail Started from the top there are clear displays and an audio to give you a clear step by step guide. The staff are also very helpful and have a great knowledge of the surrounding area

Stepping into the tower is stepping back a thousand years. While this museum is small, it is interesting and presents a good history of Waterford from when the Vikings first came to Waterford.

This is 3 storied, with stone staircases. Even though it was somewhat hard to get to the top, the view was well worth the effort. The view of the sea, the river and the town were outstanding.

The tower itself is really just a tower, but the history and the information inside the tower is amazing. They have a great video explaining the history of the Vikings in Waterford. Great for all ages, but very steep winding staircase so please be careful if you have mobility issues.

Reginald's Tower is the oldest landmark in Waterford and well worth a visit, staff are friendly and polite and helpful on other things to see and do while in Waterford. Over 3 floors so lots to see for all ages.

Reginalds tower is the remains of a strong viking presence is a must to see, beside there is a replica of a viking boat which will surprise you how small it is when they travelled such a long distance in them. The tower is on the main road so can't miss it.

We found the cannon ball, climbed all the stairs and had a great time in Reginald's tower. The 2nd favourite tourist attraction in Waterford City (behind Waterford crystal). Staff member was helpful and audiovisual presentation engaging and interesting.
