Spend today in the charming town of Waterford, with the oldest city in Ireland, first visited by the Vikings in 852AD.

The walled city has retained much of its medieval character together with the graceful buildings from its 18th-century expansion. The parameters of the 10th-century settlement can be clearly identified in The Viking Triangle. Reginald's Tower is the most historic urban medieval monument in Ireland.

The elegant Chamber of Commerce building, the City Hall and the Bishop's Palace are prime examples of beautiful 18th century architecture.
