William Vincent Wallace Plaza in Waterford, Ireland

A magnificent way to savor the views of the River Suir is walking along the waterfront boardwalk leading to the William Vincent Wallace Plaza. The square’s namesake is a 19th century, locally-born opera and piano composer. It was built on Custom House Quay in 2000 and opened the following year as a tribute to the city’s millennium. The abstract sculpture of ship sails is by artist Liam Lavery. The covered platform in the background is surrounded with wooden thrones.
