waterford factory open?

My parents will be in Waterford May 14th. They wanted to visit the factory, will it be open?

Also, they were just going to take a train down from Dublin. Is there a site for the stations?

Thanks

Waterford, Ireland

This is the link for the Dublin Waterford train.

As far as Waterford Crystal is concerned, it is difficult to get information even locally. It appears that there are no tours, but the Visitor Centre, ie the display area (which is quite big) and the cafe are open 9 - 5, 7 days a week.

Thanks for your help. I wanted to get the tickets now for the 14th, is that possible?

Is it easy for them to go to the station and purchase tickets the day they want to go?

They are older so I was trying to make it easier for them.

Thanks

You can get tickets ahead of time http://www.irishrail.ie/home/#

but most people don't bother, just get tickets at the station. There are only standard seats on that train anyway, but they will be fine.

The 6pm train can be a bit crowded, but others during the day will be no problem. The Waterford platform is at the far side of the station, if you go in from the bus/taxi side, so allow time to walk over to it.

If you are looking at the journey planner, do not get involved with the train via Limerick Junction, get the direct train Heuston to Plunkett Station Waterford.
