from Dublin to Waterford

by salonicco

Hi,
I have a simple question. Which is the best way to travel from Dublin to Waterford? I'll be travelling on 12th Nov. afternoon and living on 13th evening directly from Waterford to London. Any advice for that evening? Where to eat or to do in just 24 hours? Thanks.

www.irishrail.ie has train timetables etc

The train from Dublin to Waterford takes about 2 and a half hours; there are several during the day.

There is also a bus. Journey takes 3 hours. Look at

http://www.buseireann.ie/site/your_journey/expressway_services.asp

for timetable link (service number 4).

http://www.waterfordtourism.org/index.html should give you some ideas n what to do during your time in Waterford.

The obvious place to visit in Waterford is the Waterford Crystal Factory. This is truly an eye opener following the process of the manufacture through from beginning to end. If you like good crystal, you will really enjoy the showroom. Best to leave your credit card back at the hotel if you are on a budget because this place is temptation big time.

I did this in 1980 and stopped at Athy and Kilkenny. The castle at Athy was destroyed for the most part in the early part of the century but Kilkenny was lovely. The countryside is great and if you can do a stop along the way take a stroll.

Travel Tips for Waterford

Statue of Thomas Francis Meagher

by Dabs

Close to Reginald's Tower, there is a statue of Thomas Francis Meagher (1823-1867) who was born in Waterford. He came to national prominence during Daniel O'Connell Repeal Movement. It was Meagher who introduced the green, white and orange tricolor that would go on to become Ireland's flag, the white in the center signifying a truce between the "green" Irish Catholics and the "orange" Irish Protestants.

After the abortive 1848 Young Ireland uprising, he was shipped to Tasmania and later escaped to America where he became a citizen and Civil War hero as the commander of the Irish Brigade.

Maritime City

by SabrinaSummerville

Waterford is renowned for all things maritime, and in July 2005 it was fortunate to host the world famous International Tall Ships Race. I will post some pics here and elsewhere of this spectacular event, and the good news is that we're planning to host this event again in the near future.

In addition to this Waterford City has its own marina right off the Quay on the River Suir, by the Tower Hotel and the Quality Marina Hotel.

Dunmore East, ten miles drive from the City, is infamous for avid fans of sailing and is a delightful place to go on a sunny day and watch the sailboats on the glistening water.

Waterford is a large port and one will regularly see the vessels of the Irish Navy moored at the Quay.

Finally, Dunmore East has now become an important destination for some of the largest cruise ships in the world, to include visits from the QE2 and that floating testament to luxury, the ship known as "The World."

Anyone who has the remotest interest in matters maritime will find something to love in Waterford.

Dunmore East

by HORSCHECK

The fishing port and seaside resort of Dunmore East only 9 miles south-east of Waterford is worth a visit by bus. The bay of the picturesque village is divided by various cliffs and coves. In the sheltered harbour plenty of fishing boats and yachts can be seen.

Let's Wait and See

by SabrinaSummerville about The Cove Cafe Bar

THIS RESTAURANT AND BAR HAS RECENTLY CHANGED HANDS. THE NEW OWNER HAS A SUPERB REPUTATION LOClly, so let's see what he does with the place.

aS OF OCTOBER 2009 I HAVEN'T BEEN YET.

Oh The Cove, situated as it is on the main road to Dunmore East and just about beside the Regional Hospital, could be one of the hottest spots in Waterford City

Thai by the Sea

by SabrinaSummerville about The Saratoga

The Saratoga has been an institution in Co. Waterford for as long as I remember - and not the kind of institution where they lock you up (although you might well not mind!!).

It's a typically old Irish country pub, complete with burning log fire in Winter, with a wonderful beer garden outside which looks right onto the beach at Woodstown. Indeed, you can step straight from the beer garden onto this lovely, quiet, uncommercialised beach.

What sets the Saratoga apart form most other Irish pubs is that it has its very own Thai restaurant attached in the conservatory. That saying, if you want to bask in the warmth of the log fire in the bar and eat your meal, you're quite welcome to do so. In fact this is what I would recommend in the winter as the conservatory is pretty cold. We ate there on our second visit and had to leave our coats on!

Since I discovered it, I have been here three times. The first two times I had a great meal, the most recent visit was a bit of a disaster. On the third visit we were really only out for a walk on the beach and decided to have a quick warming coffee in the pub after. The odour of the food cooking overpowered us and so we decided to order three plates of mixed Thai starters to keep us going until dinner at home. I called the waitress and placed our order, and was really taken aback when she visibly grimaced. I was used to dealing with this girl from our previous visits and always found her friendly, so her grimace was very much out of place.

When the food arrived the platters were disappointing. In comparison to other meals there, the portions were very small and one item on each of the plates (the same one on each) was decidedly "gone off".

I would not rule out eating here again as the first two experiences were great, but I will be slow about going back.
