Historic coastal city in Ireland surrounded by beautiful countryside

Life in Waterford

Founded by the Vikings in 914 A.D., Waterford is Ireland’s oldest city. Located on the southeast coast and close to the beautiful Comeragh mountain range, the city enjoys all the attractions of urban life but without the lengthy commutes and high house prices of larger centres. It also enjoys convenient motorway access to Dublin.

As well as some of Ireland’s best beaches, Waterford is home to an award-winning ‘Greenway’ that connects the city with Dungarvan in the west of the county. You can learn more about Waterford’s attractions here.
