The Epic Tour of the Viking Triangle

Fun for both adults and children alike, the Epic Tour of the Viking Triangle organised by Waterford Treasures – Three Museums in the Viking Triangle, is a humorous and interactive 45 minutes of facts, fun and frivolity. The tour gives an engaging overview of the 1100 year old history of Waterford, Ireland oldest city.  Unique in Ireland this tour does not expect students to stand outside subject to the vagaries of the Irish weather while being regaled with stories. Instead they are treated to a fascinating exploration inside no less than five national monuments that span some 1100 years of history and where some of the great events in both British and Irish history took place. You can’t visit the Viking Triangle without taking it!
