So what exactly is the Viking Triangle?
The Viking Triangle is the ‘old town’ of Waterford City. It’s a compact area that is just a short walk from the city’s shopping area. It’s a quirky place, with interesting nooks and crannies for you to explore. This is where you can enjoy some of the key attractions of Ireland’s Ancient East, including the House of Waterford Crystal, the award winning Medieval Museum, Bishop’s Palace and Reginald’s Tower.
The Viking Triangle has lots of nice things to do and see. There are craft studios, cafes and lovely places to eat. Most of all though, there is a great sense of history. Waterford city’s motto is ‘Urbs Intacta Manet’, which means The Untaken City and in the Viking Triangle you will walk through over 1,000 years of history, you can almost hear the Viking voices, or picture the French Hugenot bakers, you can imagine the tall ships on the quay importing their wines from France and Spain.
Waterford’s fascinating history is there for the taking!
