We leave from our pre-arranged pick up point on our luxury coach. You
will be accompanied by one of our experienced tour guides. We will enjoy
a morning break for tea / coffee and scones at the pleasantly situated
Woodford Dolmen Hotel in Carlow.
Waterford City has an interesting Viking, Medieval and Georgian past.
Close to the House of Waterford Crystal there are many historical buildings
to explore, including Reginald’s Tower, The Bishop’s Palace, Christ Church
Cathedral and Waterford Museum of Treasures. An imposing statue of
Thomas Francis Meagher stands guard over this area of the city. There
will be plenty of opportunities to browse, to shop and to dine while you
spend time in Ireland’s oldest city.
We return to the Woodford Dolmen for our evening meal. Set in beautiful
gardens with outstanding views, the hotel is noted for its fine food
and impeccable service.
Although entertainment is not included, it may be added for an additional cost.
Waterford Crystal has moved to a magnificent
new home in the heart of Waterford City. A unique
highlight of a visit is the factory tour which gives

the furnace and marvel at the skills of crystal
craftsmen. After the tour indulge your passion
for the world’s most famous crystal in a lavish
retail store, which houses the largest collection of
Waterford Crystal found anywhere in the world.
An exhibition of sporting trophies and statement
pieces is an absolute must see attraction.
Set in a backdrop of the City’s medieval
landscape, shopping in Waterford City is a unique

pocket you will have great fun discovering the
