Viking Triangle & Waterford Crystal

1000 years of Viking history & 200 years of Crystal craftmanship.

“Vadrarfjord” was founded in 914 AD, a Viking settlement that became a flourishing port. Today’s narrow streets and medieval walls of the Viking Triangle stand on its original footprint. There’s Georgian Christ Church Cathedral too, on the site of the Viking church where the great Anglo-Norman knight Strongbow famously married the Irish princess Aoife.

Nearby in the House of Waterford Crystal you can see beautiful pieces still being made: treasures to speak of the city’s heritage in years to come.
