Waterford is the fifth largest city in Ireland and has been famous for Waterford Crystal for many years. I recently learned while in Ireland that Waterford Crystal is no longer made in Waterford Ireland. Waterford Crystal is now made in many countries in the world. There are also workers that worked for Waterford in Ireland that have opened their own companies using the old Waterford techniques to make quality crystal. There are those that say the “new” Waterford is not the same as the “old” Waterford Crystal, I tend to think it is personal preference in how the piece makes you feel. The town, of Waterford, was quaint with lots to offer in the way of shopping.
