Waterford City is Irelands oldest city and gives its name to the county of Waterford, which is another area we install our stairlifts in. It is Irelands 5th largest city and is the mecca for golf in the south of Ireland. It was established by the Vikings in the 900's, who gave it its Raymonds Tower. It has a strong link to the sea because of its port and shipbuilding yards.
Raymonds Tower is the most recognisable landmark in the city. This is Irelands oldest civic building and is pictured. It is a relic from the Viking times when it was used as a lookout post for the harbour. It can be found in the cultural quarter and still bears the name of the man who founded it.
Waterfords Neptune ship building yards have been in existence since the 1700's and employed hundreds of men. They built 5 trans atlantic liners here which included the SS William Penn a large liner for Europeans who travelled in style to New York.

The other big industry of the city has been its glassmaking. From the 1700's to 2009 Waterford Crystal has had its head office here. There is a link to our stairlifts head office in Stoke-on-Trent, as Stoke-on-Trent is where Wedgwoods, who later took over Waterford, started their glass and ceramics empire.
Waterford Crystal is found in the chandeliers of Westminster Abbey, State Apartments in Dublin, the Houses of Parliament, the prizewinners trophy for the World Tennis Championships and also unusually Ronald Reagan kept a Waterford vase full of jellybeans on his desk in the Oval Office! What's your favourite sweet?
The wider county is a mixture of rivers, farming districts and mountains. The real countryside of Waterford can be seen when you go along the Copper Coast. From Tramore, the coastal road winds through six pretty villages, ending in Dungarvan. The landscape offers sparkling beaches to the left and the breathtaking Comeragh Mountains to the right.
