There are many great hidden gems around the Viking triangle which is quite a compact area relating to the Viking era,you can get a very good guided walking tour which leaves from outside The Granville hotel several times a day.

So many historical locations all within walking distance. The Bishop's Palace, Reginal's Tower, the Medieval Museum. This cobbled area is well preserved & well presented. Well worth the walk around to take & perfect area to take photographs.

Wonderful area to walk on the cobblestone and take pictures of the area. Reginald's Tower and the the Midevil Museum were must sees. Just knowing you were walking in an area with so much Viking history was cool.

While in Waterford, enjoy the history aside from crystal. The triangle offers a lot of great sites and stories. It’s al within walking distance. Everything from Regina’s Tower, Medieval museum and Bishops Palace.

This is a great way to get an understanding of who the Vikings really were. These people were much more than what is seen on TV and in the movies. The Viking Triangle is the oldest Viking settlement in Ireland. Starting with the tower and...More
