Our buildings, history and landscapes are all part of our heritage which has an integral role in maintaining our quality of life and bring about economic, social and cultural benefits.

Exploring the Viking Triangle, the Copper Coast, Comeragh Mountains or visiting archaeological sites and historic demesnes at Curraghmore and the Blackwater Valley reminds us it is important to care for and maintain Waterford’s heritage.

Waterford City and County Council have a role in the conservation, enhancement and enjoyment of our heritage as promoted through the work of the Conservation Officer and Heritage Officer.

Heritage includes archaeology, built, cultural and natural heritage and information and advice is available on these areas by contacting the Conservation and Heritage Officers.
