John Roberts Square is a popular meeting point for Waterford locals and visitors alike and is a very pleasant place to wander through. Trees, sculpted outdoor seating, a modern abstract water fountain and fresh stone paving has turned this fully pedestrian area into a nice central point to the city. It is also one of Waterford’s main shopping streets.
Most of the buildings are modern developments but there are several Georgian era buildings around the square as well as Holy Trinity Cathedral and Blackfriars Abbey, which are located just off the square. Bars, restaurants and numerous shops surround this area of the City. John Roberts Square is located a mere 5 minute walk form the Fitzwilton Hotel.
