County Waterford is in the southeast of the Republic of Ireland and part of the province of Munster. Historically farming and fishing were the areas main industries. The county was mainly settled along its coastline with the Celtic Sea. The north of the county is home to its two main mountain ranges: Comeragh and Monavullagh.
The City of Waterford was founded by the Vikings around 914 and is considered to be Ireland's oldest city. Its location on the meeting point of the rivers Barrow and Sur and its nearby harbour made it an attractive trade area. In the 12th century the town was taken over by the Normans and the following four hundred years saw it grow into one of the most prosperous places in Ireland. Up until the 16th century it remained Ireland's second city. Shipbuilding and trade in wool and hides formed the basis for its thriving economy. The city is home to the award-winning Waterford Museum of Treasures, and interactive museum that tracks the city's history from its foundation to the 19th century.
Dating back to 1783, Waterford Crystal is one of Ireland's most renowned exports and is synonymous with the revival of Waterford. The company boasts being the home of the world's finest crystal. A visit to the factory is a must for any visitor to the southeast. During the tour you will get to see all parts of the production of the crystal, showing how a blend of sand, lead and potash are made into sparkling crystal by fire: from the glass blowing, to engraving, to the finished product.
