The Bishop of Waterford commissioned architect Richard Castles to build this impressive Georgian structure. You cannot miss this 1741 landmark along The Mall. Below the terrace in the foreground is part of the city’s original city wall. The historic building opened as the Bishop’s Palace Museum in 2011. Inside you will learn the story of Waterford from 1700 through the 1970s. Included are displays of period furniture, artifacts and artwork. They are arranged as if you were walking through an elaborate 18th century townhouse. The museum is part of a trilogy called Waterford Museum of Treasures.
