Welcome to…

Take a short break in Ireland’s Ancient East and visit places filled with quirky and memorable experiences.

Waterford Crystal is a world famous design brand – tour the studios and see their craftsmen at work.

Waterford’s Viking Triangle is the city’s historic quarter, with an amazing 3-D Viking Village Experience, museums, restaurants, cafes and bars.

Reginald’s Tower dates from the city’s medieval era – it is wonderfully atmospheric and well worth a visit.

The Waterford Greenway is a spectacular 46km off-road cycling and walking trail along an old railway line between Waterford and Dungarvan.


Dunmore East is a charming little fishing village and seaside spot with a pretty and unspoiled coastline.

In summer the seafront that stretches below the steep town is a whirl of fairground rides & amusement arcades, with a beach for all the family.
