This is the first time that I have written a review on tripadviser but I have to say that this was probably the best guided tour I have ever been on. I wish I could remember the guides name as I would have loved ti have thanked him personally but alias I can't. I love history, and the Bishop's Palace... 更多
Located across the road from Waterford crystal, this museum is a must of the three that form the Waterford Museums of Treasures. It contains a variety of material from grand paintings, crystal and historical memorabilia.

The displays were excellent, the upper rooms were laid out in period style and had some intriguing curios. Staff were "in character" for the tour and, rather than turning the tour into something cringey, it genuinely added to the experience.

A must to do on visit list if you are going to Waterford .

The tour was very informative and the rooms were filled with many historical pieces. I recommend this place for anyone wanting to see a little history and some... 更多
