An exciting and dynamic 3D Virtual Reality experience lasting 30 minutes, housed in an exact replica of a Viking house found in Waterford, makes for one of the most outstanding attractions in Ireland’s Ancient East. The Viking house has been recreated within the atmospheric walls of a medieval monastery where once stood a Viking fort.
The visitor is met by a Viking comb-maker, regaled with stories about life in Viking Waterford and is invited to don a special magical helmet (3D Oculus Rift headsets) that will transport them back 1100 years and they come face to face with the great heroic and legendary Viking leader Reginald, founder of the city of Veðrafjǫrðr, (Waterford)and King of Waterford and York.
The new attraction is only 100 steps from Reginald’s great Viking tower where the extraordinary Treasures of Viking Age Waterford and a fullsize replica Viking longship are on display.
