There is lots to see in this small museum within the remains of the Castle Tower, right on the waterfront in Waterford. The information is clear and well presented and the displays are interesting. The lighting is dark, but doesn't adversely affect the experience. It...More

This is a cool location and we enjoyed the history of the tower. However, if pressed for time, spend it at the more impressive locations in Waterford (Medieval Museum and Bishop's Palace).

Reginald's Tower is an architectural and historic treasure, and is a great little museum. This was our first stop in Waterford and our experience was excellent. The exhibits are clear enough for young audiences, but interesting enough to hold the attention of adult history buffs....More

An interesting place to get some of the history of Waterford which was originally founded as a Viking City. Part of the "Viking Triangle". I got there too late to talk with the staff, but there were informative signs available.
