Reginald's Tower and Museum, Waterford - Waterford Town, County Waterford, Ireland

Reginald's Tower, strongly contrasting with the nearby modern marina, is supposed to have been erected in 1003 by Reginald the Dane, but the current building possibly dates from the 12th century. Reginald's Tower is the only monument in Ireland named after a Viking and 'Reginald the Viking' founded the City of Waterford in AD 914. The marina quay complex can be seen on the right.
