I’ll admit to being skeptical of a VR experience (being on the sunny side of 65) but it was pouring rain so we tried it. Fabulous! Learned more in that half hour than any museum trip.
Great for all ages, thanks Trip Advisor, for the recommendation.

Hi Mary Ellen

Many thanks for taking the time to visit Ireland's oldest city, ‘Veðrafjǫrðr’, (Waterford), and of course, the King of the Viking's, the world's first Viking 3D virtual Reality adventure. It is the best way to see and hear about the Viking invaders and you certainly picked the right choice, thanks to TripAdvisor! No matter what age your are, this experience will bring our Viking history alive and makes history fun to be part of!

We do hope you come back again soon and take more time and see what more Waterford has to offer.

Go raibh míle maith agat!

We visited King of the Vikings on a Sunday morning at the end of July after going on the Waterford Crystal Tour. The VR was great - my 10 year old son loved it & said it was his favorite thing that we did (8-day trip to Ireland)!! The virtual reality lasts about 30 min and was very informative - highly recommend.
