“This is worthwhile”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

If you come to Waterford this tower should be on your list, the Reginald Tower, because it has the history of Ireland and this town. Also take time and go the triangle, it is only a walk of 10-15 min. On your way you can see the beautiful catholic church with the Waterford crystal chandeliers
Enjoy. By the way parking is no problem right in front of the tower.

“Interesting tours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

I really enjoyed going to Reginald's tower. It was only 3 Euro in and there are three floors in the tower with lovely viking artifacts. The girl on the desk was very friendly. Mind the winding stairs - bit scary if you have poor balance!!

The whole area in the viking triangle is very scenic and all the museums are very close together in just a few minutes stroll from the town center.

Well worth a visit for those interested in history and Vikings!

“Viking Triangle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Since Waterford City is the oldest city in Ireland, the history in the Viking Triangle is amazing. As you wander through the area and take in all the attractions, you will find the history there very interesting.

“Underwhelming”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

There are a few ruins and remains of a tower, but the town has allowed newer buildings to spring up in the area taking away from any substantive historical interest.
