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.

If you are into the religious past, and ancient tombs [of which there are very few] you might find this interesting, but the glass making/blowing and objects of beauty produced across the road are much more interesting and fascinating. the best time to visit the Cathedral is when there is a concert or choral event.

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 wife and I wandered around this lovely old building and it was just a joy to see it so bright and especially when we were able to join in a bread and wine service conducted by Jim who made us so welcome. A must if you visit Waterford.

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.

This is a fully functioning cathedral - so please do exercise appropriate decorum and behavior while visiting. Absolutely beautiful inside. just stunning. Painted soft yet vibrant colors, and filled with Waterford chandeliers. I have visited many cathedrals throughout Europe and this one will forever be etched in my memory.

A Cathedral that leaves everyone in awe of the building and its beautiful artifacts. Set in the shopping centre of Waterford, just off the Quay, opposite the Clock Tower. There is plenty of parking on the Quay and gives easy access to the Cathedral, which is on a pedestrian road.
