  • The Arboretum was established by The Irish Government as a tribute to JFK - it is very near to his family homestead - it may no longer have the immediate impact that it had but it is still a magical p...  more »
  • Loved going here with the family over the years, unfortunately it's gone to the dogs since I was last here in 2007 signage broke and short staffed shop is a total rip off. Lost its appeal along time a...  more »

  • Lovely gardens with a lake. Near the J F Kennedy homestead. Lots of tree lined walks. Wooded areas and walk ways. Nice play area for children. Tea room with a few gifts and ice cream to buy. toilet is adequate. Parking area . During summer months there's a horse and cart ride and a miniature train which was great.lots to see and do. Can bring a picnic if the weather's nice. All in all a good day out.
  • Absolutely Beautiful place. I can't recommend this place enough guys. If you have time on a fine day Make point of going to it.. You will love it We were walking for 2 hours and the views and nature to behold is just Jaw dropping
  • Met a lovely guide and despite the rain she gave us her time and explained some of the history, she was very eager to impart her knowledge on us, a pleasure meeting people who enjoy their work-it always shines through! With 3 small children and heavy rain we didn't get to really make the most of this grateful sport, we will return however! The boys would love to see the miniture train going!
  • Love the atmosphere. Train wonderful. Better to go in the Summer.
  • I havnt been here in years since I was 6years old and I'm now 25 it's a beautiful place perfect for a day out with the family espucally if you love long walks nature scenery and even a cafe incase you get hungry or so on your journey it's utterly stunning

Where to stay in Waterford

There aren't an overwhelming number of places to stay in the city center of Waterford, so consider looking into options in the surrounding neighborhoods. There are a few hotels, smaller lodgings, and a hostel in the heart of the city--the Norman quarter. However, as you venture outside the city center you'll find many traditional bed and breakfasts, cottage-style guesthouses, and family-owned accommodations. The city is easy to get around, so if you stay in a more commercial area, you will still be able to experience the magic of its medieval streets and fortifications.
