Christ Church Cathedral

Hear the church bells ring on Sundays. Designed by Georgian Architect, John Roberts, the church is where Strongbow was married to Aoife, daughter of Diarmait Mac Murchada, King of Leinster in 1170 and is one of the most historic buildings in Ireland.

  • Amazing experience at Christ church Waterford. The place was absolutely beautiful and the musicians spectacular truly making you appreciate the beauty of music. We paid for the premium seats and were very lucky to get the front row but I would recommend being there early to get yourself a good seat. The most enjoyable night.

  • Went to the candlelight concert (tickets online only). Disappointed with Premium seats. Concert was great and church was warm.

  • A beautiful church built on the site an an even older church. This historic site is where the famous English knight Strongbow married Irish Princess Aoife way back in 1170. When this church was built, very old medieval vestments were discovered buried under the previous church for hundreds of years. Very much worth a look. It's free.
