      Waterford is Ireland's oldest city, and it has a bit of a reputation: After Waterford outright refused to recognize pretenders to the English throne, King Henry VII of England gave the city its motto – "the untaken city." The same won't apply to you: You'll instantly be taken by the city's seaside scenery, craggy beaches, and Georgian buildings.

      Waterford doesn’t just have a reputation for steadfastness – it's the home of one of the world's most coveted luxury goods, Waterford Crystal. You'll visit the birthplace of the brilliant crystal and learn of the brand's steadfast, centuries-old commitment to quality and craftsmanship at the House of Waterford Crystal. You'll need the utmost self-control when you walk through the retail shop, the world's largest collection of Waterford crystal.

      Marvel at the prowess of the glass blowers as they mold sand, lead and potash into elegant crystal shapes with their breath. See how the hand marker draws geometric shapes into the shaped glass, with the cutter applying just the right pressure to etch the glass. Nothing less than perfection will do here.

      Take a quick trip to Dunmore East, where you can admire the thatched cottages and an unusual lighthouse that watches over the harbor. You can decide which captivates you most on a leisurely stroll through this seaside village.

      The best things in life...

      Can often be very expensive. Waterford Crystal is synonymous with extravagance, with a price tag to match. The on-site store has scores of items costing thousands of dollars. So if only the best will do, take a deep breath before you look at the price.
