Travel Content // Visit Waterford: The Viking Triangle*

If you’re spending a day or two in Waterford, allow some time to explore the Viking Triangle that can be found in the heart of the city. After all, Waterford has a rich history dating back to the Viking times, and with so much to see to commemorate this prolific time in its past, it’d be a shame not to dedicate a few hours to exploring it.

Before you leave for Waterford, head over to the Travelodge website to book an affordable hotel. Once you’ve done that, read on, about the three museums that make up the triangle and why some time in the Viking Triangle is essential.

Medieval Museum
The Waterford Medieval Museum tells the story of what life in the city would have been like through the ages. Within its walls, you’ll find several preserved features, including the Chorister’s Hall. You’ll also find a wealth of treasures from throughout the city’s history, including the 15th Century cloth-of-gold vestments and the Dalmatic vestment.

Reginald’s Tower
This 12th century monument was named in honour of a Viking and holds many treasures from that age. You will find Viking weaponry inside, as well as a gold and silver Kite Brooch that dates back to the 12th century.

The Bishop’s Palace
Built in the mid-18th century, the Bishop’s Palace can be found in the heart of the Viking Triangle and is home to a number of exhibits from the 18th century right through to present day, including furniture, art and glassware.

Since Viking invaders established a settlement here in 853, the city of Waterford has gone from strength to strength. However, its past will never be forgotten, and the Viking Triangle is testament to that. Incorporate it into your stay in Waterford and you’ll walk away with a new-found appreciation for the history and heritage of this fabulous Irish city.
