It’s been quite the summer in Waterford. Between Spraoi and Waterford Walls, Summer in the City and ArtBeat we have been spoilt for choice in the South East. But the fun isn’t over yet. Waterford Harvest Festival 2018 is a city-wide festival celebrating food and culture. These are a few of our highlights.
