Many people in Waterford just refer to The Quay, not distinguishing Grattan Quay, Merchants’ Quay, Meagher Quay, Coal Quay and Parade Quay. When you are in the area of the Clock Tower, you are on Meagher Quay. The Clock Tower is probably Waterford’s most identifiable...More

The only way to see the tidal river, boat traffic, and the marina while looking across the car park to the riverfront shops. A good way to walked lunch or get ready for an ice cream cone.
