Waterford City

Waterford city was founded by the Vikings in 853, and was later extended by the Anglo Normans. It is set in a commanding site on the River Suir's estuary, and became in time the southeasts main seaport. During the 18th century onwards, the industry of the city prospered, most famously it's glass industry. The strong commercialism still exists today, and the port is still one of Ireland's busiest. Waterford not only boasts some of the most beautiful countryside in Ireland, particularly the splendid scenery of West Waterford's mountain passes, but you will also find a spectacular coast line with miles of safe sandy beaches, perfect for the whole family.
