Beautiful old church, filled with history

This old church has centuries of history attached to it. We took a very self explanatory tour. This is great for history buffs and those who love old churches.

At the heart of the Viking Triangle in Waterford this is a hugely historic and beautiful building . It's free to visit! It is a working church with the Dean in situe and often hosts concerts due it it's fantastic accoustics - a mist visit if you are here for a few hours, a day, or longer 😁

While you are in the area it is always good to visit the local cathedral and get another look at life and faith. From front to back this has history and stories galore.

This was a reminder of the religious struggles form the time of Henry VIII. The architect was renowned and had the unusual task of building Christ Church and the Catholic Cathedral.

Beautiful architecture. Wasn't quite as impressed the the inside. Still the inside is well worth the visit. Surprising that there was no admission fee. Very unusual in Ireland. We were only able to spend 20-25 minutes inside.

As one of the few free entry attractions in Waterford its worth checking out. the building itself is amazing and the ceiling is spectacular. definitely worth checking out if you have 20 min to spare while in Waterford.
