This is a very old Cathedral, built I think in 1795. As Waterford City is the oldest in Ireland, the City and Cathedral are well worth a visit.

Lovely glass. Lovely staff. Too much for the kids. I was scared they would break something. But lovely place.

Just wanted a late Mass & joined the first Mass for the 'Do This in Memory' programme for the local boys school! What a giggle.. Beautiful Church, fabulous choir, booming organ and abs fab acoustics - would love to hear a full carol service with a full Symphony Orchestra in there... Will remember that Mass for quite some time....

Most interesting tour showing how crystal ware is made and designed. Many unusual "one off" pieces on display.

Had a nice tour of the work shop glass blowing, engraving, a good browse around the show room then coffee and cake the selection on offer made making a choice quite difficult.

I quite liked my short visit as it made me stop and think. Worth a look and time to reflect on more important things.

This is another amazing building and an amazing story to go with it, but if you were to view, be well worth going with a tour guide.

It is a cathedral of a relativelly small city. Do not expect more than that. Probably, if you are an expert in midieval achitecture - this could be of some interest for you. On the other hand, Waterford does not have other more interesting attractions.

We did not do the tour of the Waterford factory. We only entered toe store to glance around. However, the value was obvious, and we were impressed by the displays and attention to detail. We bought quite a bit; they offered to ship any amount for one set price; that worked!

My review of this attraction is biased because it is where my husband's great-grandfather was married and where his grandfather was baptised. It was good to see the christening font where this took place. Others might not find the cathedral so interesting as it's not particularly old.
