Reginalds Tower Reviews

  • Very informative as the mark of Waterford for the past 1000 years. Nice to explore ancient ruins alongside it's artifacts inside and outside. Unfortunately most of the artifacts were moved to Dublin so it was very empty. Careful of your head when going down the stairs.

  • Fun place!! For some reason, the entry was free! The staff were great fun! I think I was being the goofy American and they laughed. Loved going up the winding stone staircase! I loved the Lego models in the walls!

  • Pics are from's a tight walk up the circular stairs inside, well worth the visit.

  • Currently free to go in, the tower gave a nice overview of the history of the town. Start at the top for the audio visual summary of its history and then work your way through the rooms. The artifacts aren't here at the moment but it's still worth a visit.

  • I love history and this tower and surrounding area really has so much that it would take at least 3 days to see it all. The tower is a bit tough to walk through if your not very mobile. Wheel chairs would not go beyond the first floor.
