Dungarvan (Dún Garbháin in Gaelic) is an Irish seaside resort in County Waterford. Its name means “Garbhan’s Fort”, in honour of Saint Garbhan who is said to have founded a church here in the 7th century.
Dungarvan is a pretty tourist village which has everything to please, between its small fishing port, its proximity to the river Colligan, its castle, and its bridge of 1816.
It must be said that the village has a strong history, which makes it one of the most attractive places in the region! It was moreover Dungarvan, which was the only town in the area to surrender during Cromwell’s conquests, then to play an important political role in the organization of the county’s politics.
