Spent a day in Waterford touring and about 2 hours checking things out all around adjoining streets. We tried to get into the museum however it was sold out. You would be wise to book ahead if you are planning a visit.

Despite visiting during a hurricane, we thoroughly enjoyed a very different experience. Stayed at Woodside Estate in Stradbally, a magical location. Our 3rd visit in 2 years.
