    Waterford, Ireland

    September 14, 2017 in Ireland

    Waterford is Ireland’s oldest city. After a panoramic drive around the city we arrived at the House of Waterford for a guided tour. Waterford is no longer produced in Ireland with major facilities now located in Prague under the same strict guidelines.
    Our tour gave us an up close view into every step of the production process with actual craftsmen demonstrating. Afterward we went into their retail store which houses the largest collection of Waterford Crystal in the world.Read more

    Waterford

    December 17, 2016 in Ireland

    Left Cork early and headed to Waterford. Dropped my stuff off at the hostel and started touring around immediately. Waterford is the most ancient city in Ireland conquered by the Vikings in 914 AD by Reginald of Norway. It was invaded by the Oliver Cromwell, but he did not succeed in capturing Waterford. Later in the century Richard of Penrose (known as Strongbow) married Aiofe in exchange for land and settled in Waterford.Read more

    Tullys Bar, Waterford

    June 8, 2016 in Ireland

    Stopped in for a pint of local brew, Metalman. Great little bar with bathrooms cleaner and nicer than most I have come accross. The hand driers even worked! The decor was very nice and as with most pubs, it was a local hang out as well. We were given directions to Geoffs for food and also to Waterford Crystal.

    Geoffs of John Street

    June 8, 2016 in Ireland

    Stopped in for food and a pint. We were sent here by the bartender at Tullys Bar. The food was great, as usual, Joyce had the shepherds pie, and I had the spicy lamb burger (unfortunately the burger had feta cheese). We have yet to find bad food on this trip! The weather continues to be warm and dry, and it appears as though it will be until we leave. So much for experiencing typical Irish weather.Read more

    Between Buses

    August 12, 2016 in Ireland

    Got 30 minutes between buses in Waterford, so took a peek aroud the old Viking town, which I am sad to report has mostly been turned into a shopping center. I did step into a lovely church, with a beautiful set of organ pipes. The bit of Wayerford I've seen may not be beautiful, but it was nice to stretch my legs and get a cup of tea regardless.
