Presenting the Port of Waterford Eye

The Port of Waterford has supported the Winterval festival since its inception and this year for the festival’s 10th celebratory year the Port of Waterford is delighted to be announced as the title sponsor for the Port of Waterford Eye.

The attraction is much anticipated at the festival, offering not only a beautiful landmark on the city’s historic quayside but also incredible Birdseye vistas over the twinkling lights of Ireland’s Christmas Festival and the River Suir and city streetscape.

The organisers of the Winterval festival are delighted to welcome the Port aboard as a title sponsor at the festival, Director John Grubb says, “Winterval 2022 is brought to festivalgoers by the people of Waterford with a great deal of support from the Waterford business community. Without that invaluable support, we would not be able to deliver Ireland's best Christmas festival and we are delighted to have the Port of Waterford support the festival again this year and to even increase their contribution to the festival for this very special 10th anniversary year.”

Brian Moore at Port of Waterford says, “It has always been very important to the Port of Waterford to support the city, its people and our Port community. We are delighted to be involved with Winterval and the iconic attraction that is the Port of Waterford Eye with its positioning overlooking the majestic quayside is very fitting for us at the Port. We wish the festival team every success and we hope that all of the people of Waterford and beyond get to enjoy a Port of Waterford Eye experience for themselves.”

The Winterval Festival is supported by Waterford City and County Council and it officially opens in Waterford City at 5 pm on Friday, November 18th with fun and festivities on offer for all the family until December 23rd. For full festival details see
