Waterford Walls is an international street art festival, managed by the Walls Project, that has worked with some of the largest and most well known national and international names in street art to transform Waterford into Ireland’s largest and most accessible outdoor gallery. Our mission is simple-to use arts as a medium for rejuvenating and inspiring urban space.

Founded in 2015, Waterford Walls has created a collection of large-scale urban artworks across Waterford City thus transforming some of the lesser visited areas into striking examples of creativity and beauty. Now entering its fifth year, Waterford Walls has built and maintained a collection of work that rivals that of any other location in the world, showcasing the very best of Irish and International talent.

We have built a team of highly creative and experienced professionals who work year round to produce one of Ireland’s most unique events, allowing visitors almost complete access to the artists and team. This gives the public the opportunity to engage on unparalleled levels with the artwork and the event.
