We booked a tour of the Waterford Crystal Factory and Kilkenny Castle. This was a great tour, helped by the fact that we had glorious weather that day. At the factory, we had a tour of the glassmaking works, which are fascinating. The tour included some of the history of the company. There was ample time to shop in the breathtaking showroom and I took full advantage. For a flat rate (30 Euros), my purchases were shipped to the USA and were waiting for me when I arrived home. We then drove through the beautiful Irish countryside to Kilkenny, where there was time for lunch on our own before a semi-guided tour of the castle. Our only complaint is that the tour was too short in Kilkenny. The castle is surrounded by lovely parklands and gardens, which we did not have time to visit. Adding an hour to this tour would be a good idea, as would an included lunch at the restaurant across the street from the castle. Read Less

Tender process greatly improved. Used shuttle and did Waterford Crystal museum and tour on our own. Cost at less than half of Celebrity's tour. Also our tour size around factory was much smaller than those on ship's tour.
