one day in Waterford

by kohaladonah

We'll be in Waterford in Sept.on a cruise ship. We'd like to do the Waterford factory tour, but don't want to take the ship's tours (too crowded). We're already planning on mostly walking, based on what we've read here, but need to know how to get from the pier
A. Into town and
B. To the Waterford Factory.
We're fine with public transportation - bus or train.

Also, any other suggestions of off the beaten path things we should see/do?

Mahalo!

The pier is in the town. Bang in the centre.

It's about 15 minutes walk to the factory but it's a boring walk - 5 minutes in a taxi, readily available. Most of the tours will be crowded so if the ships tour is organised you might as well go on that one.

I'd suggest visiting the Cathedrals, they're very nice. You can't go wrong with the City Museum. Hope that helps.

Do you know exactly where in Waterford your ship plans to dock? You see, many of the cruise ships dock in Dunmore East in Co. Waterford which is ten miles from the City. What's the name of your ship and I'll find out for you if you're not sure.

Travel Tips for Waterford

Eat a Blaa

by orlikins

A what?

A Blaa is a type of white bread roll, very heavy on the flour and it is unique to Waterford. (Or should I say "Waaaaaatherfurd"!?!).

You really wont find it anywhere else in Ireland. It's very tasty and filling. Cafe Bia (see my restaurant tip) offer blaas with a variety of fillings.

COUNTY WEXFORD: Lying in the...

by shiran_d

COUNTY WEXFORD: Lying in the southeast corner of Ireland, Co Wexford has an enviable sunshine record, beautiful countryside and a string of delightful harbour towns and sandy beaches.

The climate is milder than elsewhere and produces a number of stunning gardens, open to the public by arrangement.

Built close to the mouth of the River Slaney, Wexford is a busy commercial and fishing town named by Vikings. Shops, pubs and an atmospheric charm make Wexford an appealing place to visit.

The Irish National Heritage Park at Ferrycarrig, northwest of Wexford comprises 17 sites linking Ireland's history from prehistoric times to medieval.

Excellent Italian

by SabrinaSummerville about La Palma

La Palma is a locally owned and very authentic Italian restaurant.

The family are Irish Italian and both the Husband and Wife proprietors are the chefs. The Maitre d' and head waitress are the son and daughter-in-law of this lovely Irish-Italian family.

The food is divine and the menu varies seasonally. Much of the produce is sourced locally and in Italy. The proprietors take regular trips back home to ensure that the best of Italian produce is served. They take time and care in menu preparation, and this is evident in the dishes on offer. presentation is thoughtful and artistic - some dishes look so pretty you won't want to eat them.

The pasta tastes like proper Italian pasta in that the sauces are not too thick and heavy. I note with other places that they go to town on the cream or the tomato sauce - not here.

The original present site of La Palma has recently become a pizza and pasta "quickie" restaurant called "Espresso." The original La Palma has now moved 100 yards up the street to a wonderful Georgian house on The Mall. The new premises has been decorated in such amazing style by one of the sons of the owner that he should consider a change of career from chef to interior decorator.

Call in and enjoy a digestif with Claudio and ask him to help you choose the perfect Italian wine to accompany your meal. For a main course I recommend the prawns sauteed in garlic ginger and lime, or the fillet steak with their own garlic butter.

The desserts are delightfully Italian and impossible to resist.

Buon appetito.

The Irish Chinese

by SabrinaSummerville about Johnny Fan's

I wrote the following praise of this restaurant when I first joined the site. It changed hands in or about October 2007. I have eaten there once since and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, but I would need t go back to be sure. In the meantime, read on to enjoy the place as it once was.

I believe that Johnny Fan was one of the first to establish Chinese restaurants in Ireland, and he chose to eventually settle in Waterford.

Here he has created a number of restaurants, but his current flagship is Johnny Fan's Chinese and Seafood restaurant in High Street in Waterford City,

This is a really lovely place to eat, especially if you are with children for lunch. The staff are very child-friendly and will do their best to entertain your kids and leave you peacefully to eat.

The food is the very best that Chinese has to offer, plus they source the most excellent local seafood. They have a special set menu for lunch which is terrific value, and a very extensive evening a la carte menu (which can also be ordered at lunch if you want to splash out). On weekdays and Saturdays the special lunch menu is priced at only Euro12.98 per person. On Sunday this rises to just over Euro 16 per person. This is for a three course meal, with an excellent selection of meals to choose from.

The main course dishes on the a la carte menu start at around Euro 17, with starters priced around Euro8.

There is an extensive wine list, with some very special rare wines. There is also a full liquor license.

The decor is elegant and almost old fashioned, although the building housing the restaurant is relatively new. The setting works, however, and you will feel very comfortable. This is an authentic Chinese restaurant and Johnny always has incense burning in front of an oriental icon.

There is a main front room, and a more private back room. While lunch is usually served between 12.30 and 2.30, if you are sitting in the back room they will let you sip away at your wine and chat to your hearts content for as long as you like. I recommend the house special mixed starter followed by the locally caught fresh lobster with ginger and spring onion. Pricey, but great!

They have also introduced a number of interesting new dishes lately, with the advent of a new chef. I love the prawn cakes and also the dumplings. Mmmm.
