Just outside the city walls is Ballybricken, one of the many inner-city villages in Waterford. The centre of the village has been converted into a public green area with a bandstand and many benches. It is known locally for having some of the finest produce and butcher shops in the city.
Ballybricken is one of the oldest and most historic parts of Waterford City. It was the centre of the livestock, bacon-curing industry and the buying and sale of livestock.
