Why choose Waterford as a cruise destination?

Waterford as a Cruise destination, offers visitors an option that no other Port in Ireland can.  Visitors to Waterford and the Ireland’s South East region can access the attractions of the  counties of Carlow, Kilkenny,Tipperary,Waterford and Wexford.

Ireland’s Celtic, Christian, Viking, and Norman past can be experienced at the many heritage sites located in the South East:

  • Dunbrody famine ship in New Ross, County Wexford
  • Rock of Cashel in Tipperary
  • Museum of Treasures  in Waterford City’s Historic Quarter
  • Medieval Kilkenny Castle

A short drive to the world famous Waterford Crystal Visitor Centre and Factory Tour, where one can marvel at master craftsmen transforming molten glass into works of art.  This can be accommodated on a variety of stimulating half day or full day excursions while still leaving time for passengers to choose additional shore excursions.  As the oldest City in Ireland, it’s not surprising to find that Waterford City is steeped in history from when the Vikings landed, through Norman occupation, Victorian times up to the modern day.Museum of Treasures, Reginald’s Tower, the House of Waterford Crystal, Theatre Royal and Christ Church Cathedral.The historic South East region is geographically compact and linked by five great river systems the region boasts a comprehensive range of attractions.

We look forward to welcoming even more visitors to our shores, and experience the magic of Ireland’s sunny South East.
