King of the Vikings

EXPERIENCE THE WORLD OF THE VIKINGS IN IRELAND’S OLDEST CITY, VADRAFJORD

HANDCRAFTED REPLICA VIKING HOUSE BUILT IN WATERFORD’S VIKING TRIANGLE AN AUTHENTIC VIKING HOUSE IN THE RUINS OF A 13TH-CENTURY FRANCISCAN FRIARY.

For a hundred years, Vikings in their swift longships raided the monasteries and settlements of Ireland, taking slaves and treasure.
Then in 902, their warrior leaders were driven from Ireland and a fragile peace fell over the land.
This peace was shattered 1100 years ago in 917 when Reginald, grandson of the legendary Ivar, returned to Waterford where he built a fort and became king.
He then re-established Viking power in Dublin and sailed to England to become ‘King of York and all the foreigners of Ireland and Britain’.

 

Experience in virtual reality these blood-thirsty slaving raiders and town builders and international traders. See the authentic Viking hut, constructed as it would have been, in the ruins of Baileys New Street’s ancient friary. And learn what it means to be a Viking!

Great museum, A must-see for all ages!

No need to worry about lines and DO purchase the Freedom Pass ticket which gives you admission to most of the museums in the Medieval Triangle. It’s only a few Euros more than the single ticket price and you get to see all the important places. All of the staff are welcoming and wonderful. We were there on a Sunday, so basically had few other tourists and could take our time. We also were glad we went to the Bishop’s Palace which is not at all what we thought it would be. We had a wonderful re-enactor perform as the housekeeper to guide us on our tour. So much richer to experience the house this way! I loved the Silver Museum and my husband and I both enjoyed the Time Museum. Thank you to the wonderful staff!

Don’t miss the Bishop’s Museum, Waterford

The Bishop’s Museum was unexpectedly comprehensive and thought-provoking. We expected to see beautiful vintage Waterford crystal and lovely furnishings, which we did, but the historical displays of Ireland’s role in WWI and Waterford’s role in the Easter Rising were most enlightening. Be sure to check out the excellent and detailed trench emplacement diorama honouring the men of the Irish and Ulster brigades. Not to be missed is the innovative 3-D video presentation dramatizing the history of Waterford crystal. Lovely, friendly, most accommodating ladies staff the museum which also has a pleasant tearoom for lunch too. On the only rainy day of our visit, the Bishop’s Museum was the perfect place to spend a couple of very worthwhile hours.

Iconic Viking stronghold

It was unfortunate that when we visited the exhibition of artefacts had been removed to a Dublin museum due to the restoration of the building. However, it did not detract from the historical significance of this building which is well recorded in guidebooks. Climbing the circular stone staircase up the three levels was well worth it.

Wide range of Irish silversmiths' craftsmanship through the ages

Display of Irish silver freely donated by Irish silver collectors. Excellent presentation with descriptions of each exhibit. The variety of exhibits and the craftsmanship of their makers is exceptional. Also, a video outlining important events in Irish history. The exhibits are sparklingly clean as they are housed in air-tight cases.

A Different Way to Learn About Viking Life!

After dragging my kids to several museums and hikes, I wanted to find something for them to do that was up their alley - and this TOTALLY was! My sons, ages 16, 9 and 9 all were completely absorbed in this unique activity. I wasn't sure what to expect but you just go into a recreated long house and after a short lesson, you put on a VR headset and watch a 30-minute program that teaches you about the Viking History of Ireland and it feels like you're actually living it! It was my first VR experience and I thought it was super well done! Highly recommended for history buffs, especially, or anyone that likes learning in an interactive way.

A unique experience in the heart of the Viking triangle

We accidentally stumbled upon this museum just before last admission. It was one of those happy accidents! We were astonished by this unique museum and its impressive collection of watches and clocks from all around the world and other artefacts. The museum staff was very kind and informative. If you might be hesitating, because you think it‘s a boring museum about clocks, don‘t. It‘s very modern and interestingly made. Even if you don‘t care about the history of the clocks, they are still nice to look at. Also suitable for small children. If you ever happen to be in Waterford, definitely visit this museum! You will find yourself in another world:)
