Waterford is a small city situated in the South East of Ireland. The city lies a few miles inland from the coast and is the principal city of County Waterford. The city is thought to be the oldest city in Ireland and the area has a rich and interesting heritage. The city has a population of around forty five thousand people but it often gets busier as this part of Ireland is very popular with tourists.
If you are looking for accommodation in the city then there are a few options when it comes to hotels. Some of the bigger and better known ones include The Ramada Viking Hotel, The Waterford Manor Hotel and The Waterford Marina Hotel. These have very good reputations for good quality rooms and good service. There are also a few smaller bed and breakfasts and guesthouses in the city. There are also quite a few privately owned holiday homes both in the city and in the surrounding area.
With Warerford being such an old city it is also very traditional in some places. There are lovely little streets with brightly coloured shops and houses, this can be a really picturesque place to look round. Some of the shops are worth a look as well, there are plenty selling local produce, a few art galleries and lots of places to buy souvenirs from. There are also plenty of practical shops as you would expect in somewhere of this size.
The city is very well known for it's music. There is nearly always live music on somewhere in the city, this can range from traditional Irish music to modern rock music. Many of the bars are very friendly and you will always get a warm welcome from the locals. There are also a few nice places to eat, nice restaurants offering a variety of cuisines or just a simple takeaway, there is plenty on offer when it comes to eating out in the city.
There are plenty of nice little places to visit around Waterford. The coast is not far and there are some excellent beaches and some really nice cliffs to explore. There are some lovely little coastal towns such as Tramore and Dunmore East, these are both great places to explore and experience the laid back Irish lifestyle. There really is so much to do both in the city itself and also in the surrounding area. If you have never been to the city of Waterford then next time you are in South East Ireland make sure you give it a visit.
Summary: Great Place To Visit
