Top 100 Attractions Review

It is no great secret that Ireland has history seeping from not only every sod of grass, but every acre of its green lush landscape. The county of Waterford has a huge part to play in not only Irish history, but world history also. Being the ancestral home to President Kennedy, amongst many other famous names, Co. Waterford has so much to offer people who visit the area either just for the day, or for longer. The Waterford Viking Triangle is an integral part of Waterford City and a large amount of Waterford’s attractions are positioned within it perimeter. The triangle itself is huge in character and is epitomised by its narrow streets, atmospheric public spaces and although I am not normally one to applaud local authorities, Waterford’s huge amount of cultural & heritage attractions are a credit to the local council who really have put tourism right at the top of their agenda.

Waterford Viking Triangle

Attraction in Co. Waterford

Waterford Viking Triangle

Waterford Viking Triangle (WVT) is a compact, historic area located on the footprint of the original Viking settlement dating from 914 when Waterford City was first established. WVT is a tranquil and charming quarter of Waterford City characterised by narrow streets, historic architecture, civic spaces and a critical mass of cultural and heritage attractions.Geographically it comprises the north east corner of Waterford City fronting the quays and the River Suir to the north, the central retail area to the west and the House of Waterford Crystal on The Mall to the South. Waterford Viking Triangle is the result of considerable investment and a new collaboration between public and private sector interests and it is the cornerstone of a long term strategy to make Waterford a competitive City destination and a major attraction for the South East region. The overall strategy for the quarter is to add a critical mass of attractions within a strongly branded and managed destination quarter.
