“Great tour”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Excellent tour of the facility with very knowledgeable guides in period dress. They made the place come alive with stories of the growth of the town and the evolution of the Palace.

“Bishop's Palace”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We didn't get to see all of it, because we weren't there at the right time for a tour. We heard a little of the history from one of the women who was on the ground floor, in century costume, but it would have been nice to see more.

“Bishops Palace”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

So much history here, it's great. You can take a guided tour or take a self guided tour with an earphone which explains the history in each room as you enter it and then offers more indepth history on the articles in the room if you like.

“Wish I had more time to visit”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

An excellent overview of the history of Waterford with an amazing array of treasures. Must return and spend more time.

A visit to Waterford is wasted if one does not visit the Bishop's Palace!
