South East Region

Waterford and the South East region promises a wonderful opportunity to experience the country’s unique heritage. 

The geographically compact sunny South East region plays host to many fine gardens including: the Dunbrody famine ship in New Ross, County Wexford; the mighty Rock of Cashel in Tipperary and the magnificent Kilkenny Castle, all of which feature in shore excursions to visiting cruise ships.

New for 2017:  Kilkenny's Medieval Mile Museum is set in the 13th century St Mary’s church and graveyard we tell the stories of Kilkenny’s powerful patrons and inspired creators through the monuments and artefacts they left behind.
