Walking in Waterford

A visit to County Waterford is a way of overcoming the stresses and strains of everyday life. The choices are infinite for walkers: whether it is climbing Knocksheegowna and walking along Knockanafrinn ridge, or wandering through quiet forests, discovering trails off the beaten track where it appears no one has walked for thousands of years, or maybe staying on the beaten track and ambling along signposted looped walks, or maybe even exploring our fantastic Greenway, whatever your preference might be, it is on offer here in County Waterford.

Described by some, as Ireland’s best kept secret, the Comeragh Mountains offer everything you could want from a walking holiday. A walkers’ paradise, this easy to access mountain range offers to the visitor wonderful vistas across the county and down to the sea. There are walks to suit people of all levels, from easy walks and rambles to more difficult and challenging terrain for the more experienced walker, many of which are now way-marked trails.

Waterford’s coastline is one of the most stunning in Ireland. The Copper Coast Geopark stretches along 25Kms of this coast and treats the visitor to beautiful sandy beaches as well as lots of interesting geological and historical aspects, all which lends itself to unbelievable walking opportunities. Much work has also been done along the coastline west of the picturesque village of Dunmore East. A way-marked trail will bring you along some of the most stunning coastline in Ireland.
