Waterford City has a wealth of history dating back to 914AD! The city is heaving with museums, architecture, the world famous House of Waterford Crystal, excellent shopping and beautiful parks. Winterval takes place across Waterford in the unique heritage sites across the City and therefore is the perfect place to enjoy the festive season while exploring Ireland's oldest tourist destination and experiencing history from Viking to Victorian times.
Once you have finished exploring Waterford City, there is still plenty to see beyond the City from endless sandy beaches to the spectacular coastline in the Copper Coast UNESCO European Geo Park and the quaint little villages scattered along the coast. There are endless attractions inland as well from the beautiful heritage town of Lismore and for the slightly more adventurous consider a walk in the rugged Comeragh mountains which are abounding in lakes, rivers, hollows, cliffs and rocky slopes.
