Reviews Waterford

Overall rating 6
Overall Guide : The city itself is a nasty, dirty disused and boring spot. Unemployment is the highest per head of capita of any county in Ireland. The people of Waterford City & County are lovely however, some of the finest that you... more will ever come across. Decent, salt of the earth types. Very few decent restaurants, though there are some reasonable pubs to go out in, Downes, Geoffs, Alfie Hales, T&H Doolans, The Showboat, away from the main student-frequented areas really. Few gyms, none of any real quality except the Kingfisher, which is a poor best as it is. Waterford county however, is utterly stunning. The Comeragh Mountains and the many climbs within (Coumshingaun for example), the archaeological sites associated with the Comeraghs, the copper coast, rolling hills, the beaches and bays, fabulous! "The magic road" is a great stop while visiting Mahon Falls. Waterford is the second most forested county in Ireland, and there are few places finer in the country to spend some time in, than Lismore and its forests. Lismore and Dungarvan are great places to stay, and both have excellent restaurants. Like a lot of Waterford, and Ireland of course, Tramore is not what it used to be. The majority of places are closed down, and the town shows the signs of disuse and age. Wonderful beachfront and beach-related amenities however. Great surfing area!
Not to be missed Comeragh Mountains , Lismore , Dungarvan

Overall Guide : The village of Dunmore East in Waterford provides excellent facilities for water sports. A must-see is the Waterford Crystal Visitors Centre, home of the Waterford Crystal company. One of the most important and oldest urban structures in Waterford is Reginald’s Tower, named... more after the city’s founder Regnall. The Waterford Museum of Treasures on Merchant’s Quay has a huge collection of memorabilia on the city’s 1,000-year-old history. Unique to the city’s culinary delight is the blaa, a bun-like piece of bread, believed to have been introduced by Huguenot refugees in the late 1600s. The Brasserie Orange and La Palma restaurants are recommended for their delectable treats. The annual Spraoi Theatre Festival, in summer, attracts huge crowds. The Waterford International Festival of Light Opera has been held in the Theatre Royal for more than four decades now. In 2005, the city hosted the Tall Ships Race attracting about 4,50,000 people.
