On Easter weekend, Saturday March 31st to Monday April 2nd, Waterford hosts its first international Viking Festival. Over the weekend Waterford will welcome visitors from across Europe as well as around Ireland, for a weekend of great family fun and excitement.

There will be fierce Viking battles, a Viking Village in Cathedral Square, workshops, Viking memorabilia and ornaments. There will also be Viking tales, songs, music from Iceland, Viking Drummers from Spain, Dragon boats on the River Suir and all culminating in a spectacular Viking Roadshow in the Apple Market.

To welcome the Vikings back to Waterford, Waterford Viking Triangle are asking Waterford businesses to come on board and give them a big ‘Vadrarfjordr’ welcome. The best business initiative campaign invites businesses to implement a Viking theme, to their windows, in store displays, have their staff in Viking clothing, create a Viking cocktail or add a Viking dish to the menu- let you imagination know no bounds!

The prize - the ultimate day out for your team in Viking Waterford, the day will kick off with a relaxation treatment in Karuna Day Spa followed by lunch and a guided factory tour at the House of Waterford Crystal, then its across to experience the world’s first Viking virtual reality experience King of the Vikings, after which you will be ready for a beverage at the Fat Angel wine bar followed by dinner and drinks enjoying Irelands Ancient Feast at The Reg.
