Waterford is world famous for its crystal ware – and for good reason: it's exquisite. All crystal is hand cut and hand blown at a new facility in the centre of the city. Fascinating hour-long tours are available to watch the craftsmen at work and there is, of course, an opportunity to buy their work. There's more to Waterford than its crystal, however. This city's location on the River Suir made it into one of the most important European ports in medieval times. The city's Medieval Museum is a perfect and vivid introduction to this intriguing history, while the city's street pattern reflects the various medieval villages that make up modern Waterford. This layout makes walking by far the easiest way of getting around. Among many other attractions, there's one that stands out. The stern facade of the Georgian Bishop’s Palace conceals spectacular interiors including the oldest surviving piece of Waterford crystal.
