  • The oldest city in Ireland, founded by the Vikings in 914 ad, is famous for the Crystal, the renowned Waterford cristal, whose products are known and appreciated throughout the world and that with guided shows visitors the various delivery phases. It has a Catholic Church, the Holy Trinity Cathedral, from the inside is very rich, with several columns with Corinthian capitals and 10 painted beautiful Waterford crystal chandeliers. It was built between 1792 and 1796 by John Roberts, architect of the place, and has the distinction of being the oldest Cathedral of the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland. It was restored in 1977, in 1990 and in 2006. To see.

  • Really nice somewhat small Church/Cathedral in Waterford. Located near several other sites in the area. Definitely worth a stop.  more »

  • A fine Georgian Cathedral which is sited on a place of Christian worship for almost 1,000 years. Construction of this present building began in 1773 and completed by the same John Roberts who designed the Roman Catholic Cathedral in 1779. This gives Waterford the unique distinction of being the only city in Europe where the protestant and catholic cathedral’s were conceived by the same man. It is an active place of worship today and is a parish church.
  • Waterford has two Cathedrals and both were designed by John Roberts. The Georgians were ruthless in destroying older buildings to build their own style. They dropped bits of masonry from the roof to persuade the bishop to destroy the Gothic cathedral that once stood here. Whether this was a good swap or not is a matter of opinion so no 5 stars!
  • Same architect as the Cathedral in Barronstrand street. Beautiful inside.
  • Beautiful church
  • Beautiful example of a Georgian church. Good interpretive display and a peaceful atmosphere.
