Waterford - The oldest city in Ireland, its landmark is the oldest building in the country and a nod to its Viking past - Reginald’s Tower. It's pretty here, and although known for its history, it's a contemporary and lively place!
Wexford - In Ireland’s ‘Ancient East’ (an area named for its large number of historic attractions) the coastal town sits at the mouth of the River Slaney – and has a pretty array of colourful buildings dotted around the harbour and water’s edge.
Kilmore - A quaint village in the beautiful County of Wexford, on the South East coast of Ireland - it's got all the essentials: a chemist, a post office, a grocery store/newsagent - and two pubs!
Kilkenny - One of Ireland’s most cosmopolitan cities, here you'll find extensive eateries, attractions and events. But it’s also situated at the heart of Ireland’s Ancient East and is the country’s best-preserved Medieval city.
The Rock of Cashel - One of Ireland's most visited tourist attractions, the unique rock looms over the Golden Vale at the heart of Ireland’s Ancient East – and features the most impressive cluster of medieval buildings in the country.
A Viking city
The oldest city in Ireland, Vikings created Waterford City in County Waterford due to its sheltered bay and strategic location on the Suir River. The city’s landmark is a nod to its Viking past – and sits at the heart of what's known as The Viking Triangle: Reginald’s Tower. The oldest building in Ireland has been in continuous use for over 800 years.
The perfect mix of old and new, city and country
Found at the head of Waterford Harbour, the city is very pretty – and although it's known for its history, it's actually a contemporary city with a lively restaurant, bar, independent shopping and festival scene.
If you have time, the Waterford Greenway (Ireland’s longest greenway) is one of the highlights of Waterford City, a beautiful way to see the area safely on foot or on two wheels – and with the whole family. Seek out the city’s speciality, the Waterford Blaa - a soft white bread roll which is traditionally filled with hot bacon or served with local butter.
