Viking Sword and Longboat

The impressive wooden Viking sword in Bailey’s New Street measures more than 15 metres and is carved out of one single tree. Admire its intricacy and detailed carvings of Waterford’s history -legendary and indisputably unique. The Longboat just down the street beside Reginald’s Tower is another fine example of the past. Both have to be seen to be appreciated.

Viking Sword and Longboat Reviews

  • Probably my favorite thing to see in Waterford. That includes the museums. The craftsmanship is outstanding. A huge wooden sword ingraved with a visual history of Waterford and Ireland on both sides. What amazing artistry.

  • Ourselves and the kids loved it! If you're into historical information or events, maybe even a vikings fan, you'd definitely want to visit this sword to experience the sculpture and the surrounding area. The sword is truly magnificent at 23m long, the carving detail will leave you with wonder. A wall close by has the history and lore behind the sword which is amazing. Plenty of little food cafés and restaurants near by. If you're planning on doing the whole viking history experience in this area, wear comfortable shoes.
