It is a tranquil place, characterised by narrow streets, historic architecture, atmospheric public spaces and unique cultural and heritage attractions. Wander through Waterford Viking Triangle, visit the home of the global brand that is Waterford Crystal, nine national monuments including a 13th century underground wine vault, three world class museums (Viking, Medieval and Georgian) as well as an array of craft studios, cafes and excellent gift shops. Over 1,000 years of history unfold in just 1,000 paces in this compact and authentically charming location.

don't miss this walk, and do take the official Tour. There's no point doing the walk without a guide, as there is much to learn. It isn't long or arduous, but very informative.

The viking triage looks fantastic and is a credit to all involved. Great area for a walk around while picking up little facts about Waterford's history.

A walk around the entire triangle shouldn't be missed. Spending time taking it all in can be very rewarding.

Not realizing the history it was very eye opening to walk the Viking Triangle and be exposed to all of the past.

This is a lovely area for a stroll quaint little streets & shops. Waterford is celebrating its 1100 birthday this year so they had a Viking boat on display. Well worth a visit.
