Johnstown Castle
The harmony between great Victorian revival castles and their surrounding ornamental grounds is rarely seen to such perfection  as at Johnstown Castle.

The mature woodlands and lakes of this demesne provide the perfect setting for this turreted, battlemented and machicolated castle of gleaming silver-grey ashlar, built between 1810 and 1855 and incorporating part of a more ancient castle.

Hook Lighthouse
Visit one of the Oldest Operational Lighthouses in the World.

Hook Head, wild and elemental, tranquil and serene, in its serenity hides the treachery which bewaits unsuspecting mariners.

Little wonder that William Marshall earl of Pembrokeshire undertook the building of the lighthouse in the early 13th century as a navigational aid to guide his ships into Waterford Harbour.

Irish National Heritage Park

Stroll through the park with it's homesteads, places of ritual, burial modes with
long forgotten remains.

Your sense 's come alive with sights and sounds stretching back 900 years.

Dunbrody Famine Ship
The original Dunbrody was a three-masted barque built in Quebec, Canada, for the Graves family of New Ross, Co. Wexford in 1845.
She carried many emigrants to the new world from 1845-1870.

The Dunbrody Project involved the construction of a full scale sea-going replica.
The ship was finished in early 2001 and is now open to visitors at the quayside in New Ross.
