The Ritz Bar in Tramore Co Waterford. A long linear pub with hipped thatch roof dating from the late nineteenth century. Aparently once three fishermens cottages but renovated in the 1920′s to become a public house. Further renovated and extended to the rear in 1995, today it retains its charm to the road with 1920's shopfront details around the entrance door and a roof covered in water reed with a block ridge of straw. It adds interesting charcter to the road above this popular seaside resort.
Reginalds Tower Waterford. A dramatic remnant of the long history of this city. Changed over the years but largely dating from the Thirteenth Century. The stucture once guarded the triangular end point of the city’s defensive walls. Used as a mint a prision and a storehouse, it is now open to the public and houses a good exhibition on the city. Well worth a visit.
