If in Waterford, the Viking Triangle is well worth the walk. I was there the day after a storm (Hurricane Ophelia) and while it was cool, the skies were blue and the sun was shinning. A beautiful day to walk the triangle.

We did a self guided tour of the Viking's Triangle. It was very easy to get around, we were a little too early in the morning to get into Reginald's Tower, but we did check out the ruins of the friary and mugged for pictures...More

The Viking triangle is an interesting area and Waterford Crystal is a must see. Parking is very easy along the quay, the nearest to the bridge is cheaper than the ones further towards the Customs House.
