Ireland's oldest city which sits on the coast and it's history stretches back further than the Vikings
Waterford Tours with Great British Trips
Waterford is the oldest city in Ireland. It managed to combine perfectly the old and the modern with its collection of pubs, gourmet restaurants and excellent shops and boutiques which co-exist with medieval city walls, picturesque cobbled back streets and the magnificence of historic buildings still standing proud after more than a thousand years. Waterford with its historic heart "The Viking Triangle" is Ireland's oldest City and is also older than all of Northern European capitals with the exception of London and Paris. Some parts of the city still feel almost medieval, with narrow alleyways leading off many of the larger streets. In 914, a great Viking and pirate, Regnall, established a base here and built a longport or ships' haven which would in time become a modern City.
