  • Such beauty and informational of the oldest city in Ireland. The Vikings did not disappoint. The landmarks are a must see and the drive from Dublin through the countryside was stunning.

  • I was a bit skeptical of this being worth the time and money, but it was the highlight of our visit to Waterford. Definitely worth it and I highly recommend it. It is a virtual reality experience that journeys through the past of Viking history.
  • No booking via website… we called and booked for 2pm. We arrived in Waterford at 1pm and because we knew we still would have to eat, we started calling to re-book the experience. No one picked up the phone. After 20 or 30 attempts I left a message on their answering machine around 1:30pm. No one called me back. When we finally arrived around 2:30pm they were fully booked for the day, nobody knew I had called, nobody had picked the message. They said from 1 to 2pm is their lunch time which is not mentioned anywhere. What kind of touristic place is that ?!
