Places of Interest

Waterford Harbour is a broad and beautiful in inlet of the sea, more than three miles wide in places, which drains three rivers. Viking traders created two sea ports, which developed into the towns of New Ross and Waterford.

The Passage East car ferry runs continously from 7am - 10pm and opens up the Hook Peninsula to anybody staying at Gaultier Lodge. Directly across from Gaultier is the old fort of Duncannon, which was built at the time of the Spanish Armada.
Hook Lighthouse
The Hook Lighthouse at Hook head was build more than 800 years ago and is still operational and open to the public.

Waterford City was captured in the 12th Century by the Normans and was turned into a stronghold. The Town itself is a maze of narrow streets, which date from medieval times. Reginald’s Tower now a museum dates from the 12th Century is more or less unchanged from its original state.

The Tower was the location of the famous marriage between Strongbow and Aofie the King of Lenister's daughter. Close by is the central tower of the Black friars Dominican Priory which was built in 1226 and still stands to this day.

There are also some interesting examples of Georgina architecture, some designed by John Roberts who also designed Gaultier Lodge and most notably Christ Church (1770-9) and the R.C. Cathedral Holy Trinity (1793-6).
