Travel to the Waterford Gaeltacht
County Waterford has some of the most beautiful and varied scenery in Ireland. The county offers a beautiful coastline, lovely river valleys and two dramatic ranges of accessible mountains. The Waterford coastline is a series of rugged cliffs and sandy bays, where you’ll find many attractive seaside resorts.
The Blackwater valley offers the finest river scenery in Ireland. The picturesque town of Lismore, through which the Blackwater flows, is situated at the foot of the Knockmealdown Mountains. The charming fishing village of Dunmore East is well worth a visit.
County Waterford offers great opportunities for golf, equestrian, walking, angling, water sports and cycling.
An Rinn (Ring) is the only Gaeltacht region in Waterford, and is one of the smallest Gaeltachtaí. The area contains An Cuinigear, a long peninsula in Dungarvan Bay which hosts a huge variety of seabirds. Coláiste na Rinne, an Irish language college, attracts many students of the language for both summer and full term courses. The area is also known for fine cut crystal from Criostal na Rinne and Irish Wildlife Mobiles in Sean Phobal.
