Hotel Waterford

Waterford Ireland

Tucked away in the south-eastern corner of Ireland, County Waterford combines a wonderful mixture of sandy coastline with the rugged landscape more commonly found in County Cork.


Waterford City owes it origins to the Viking raiders and settlers of the ninth and tenth centuries. They chose a site for their settlement very similar to Viking town sites all across northern Europe. The key elements were a ridge of dry ground, a tidal river, a small tributary, fresh water and an easily defended site.

With all these factors present, a Viking settlement developed in the twenty-acre triangle between Reginald's Tower, the Clock Tower and the Car Stand. The three parallel streets of the older city, Lady Lane, Peter Street and High Street lie higher and were within the city walls. A lot of this area has now been investigated by archaeologists, resulting in some very extensive and spectacular finds.
