Waterford is over 1100 years old, and for most of this time the Apple Market, one of the oldest market squares in town, was a lovely little spot, with an actual market being held there once or twice a week.
However, that is all gone now, since the mad people in city hall wasted a large amount of public money to put a triangular roof with mirrors over the spot.

No one ever asked for this, no one I know likes it, and it is an eyesore and a scandalous waste of money. It appears that those who should promote Waterford are doing their best to make it look ugly and ridiculous.

I haven't been in Waterford in over 2 years. The last time I was the Apple Market was just a road. Clever thinking by local business owners and local authority who must have taken Pat Shortts advice on Ireland being a great little country if only we could roof it . The design with mirrored ceiling gives great shelter from our winter monsoon season and nightlife here has seemed to thrive since its opening. Although we didn't see any live bands we were shown videos of the all Ireland atmosphere in Revolution . Huge addition to the city and I look forward to returning in the summer to experience the live bands outdoors here.
Looking up at the ceiling is like "where's Wally" when crowded . Make a trip down Apple market way when in the Deice city

If you are looking for a place to have a drink and enjoy the nightlife in Waterford the Apple Market is the place to go.
There are a number of great bars and clubs that cater for everyone's tastes in music.

The area is looking great for Christmas and has added a seriously nice vibe to that part of the city.

Nice place to sit outside while enjoying some food and drink.
