New Heritage Guide Celebrating Waterford’s Built Heritage

Architectural  Waterford —Buildings Through Time  is a new heritage tourism guide published by  Waterford  City and County Council’s Heritage Office  celebrating  the built heritage of Waterford  City and County.  Following on from the publication of Walk Waterford in 2012  and Historic Waterford —The Coast   in 2013,  Architectural Waterford is the latest addition to  a series of tourism guides being undertaken by Waterford City and County Council. Visually appealing  and informative, the heritage guide details  sites of  architectural interest  within and between  Waterford City and towns around the county of  Waterford  including Portlaw, Dunmore East, Tramore, Dungarvan, Lismore, Ardmore and  Ballyduff.  

The guide includes details of the many notable architects who worked in Waterford and left  a legacy of fine townhouses,  country houses and ecclesiastical structures as reflected in  “John Roberts Square”, the “Pugin room” of Lismore Castle  and the  Harry Clarke  Studio windows in  many churches.  The guide was published with the support of funding from the Heritage Council through the County Heritage Plan Fund 2014. Copies of the guide are available in  museums, tourism offices, libraries  and by contacting the Heritage Officer on  bguest@waterfordcouncil.ie .
