The Viking Triangle is home to three museums—Reginald’s Tower, the Medieval Museum, and Bishop’s Palace—collectively known as the Waterford Treasures. Exhibitions in Reginald’s Tower detail the city’s Viking and early medieval history, while the Medieval Museum documents Waterford in the Middle Ages. Bishop’s Palace covers the period from 1700 through to the 1970s.
You can join a walking tour around the lanes of the Viking Triangle, some led by costumed actors. Guided tours often incorporate visits to the 13th-century Choristers’ Hall and 15th-century Mayor’s Wine Vault (both part of the Medieval Museum), as well as other key landmarks such as the ruins of the 13th-century Franciscan Friary, which hosts a 30-minute virtual reality experience in a replica Viking house.
