King of the Vikings

Site Overview

A special magical helmet will transport you back 1100 years

King of the Vikings is the world's first Viking 3D virtual reality adventure.

This exciting and dynamic 3D virtual reality experience lasts 15 minutes and is housed in an exact copy of a Viking house found in Waterford. It 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.

Visitors are met by a Viking comb maker, regaled with stories about life in Viking Waterford, and invited to don special magical helmets (3D Oculus Rift headsets) that will transport them back 1100 years to 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 full-size replica Viking longship are on display.

The experience is available in English, French and German.
