The Kilmacthomas Viaduct is a former Irish railway viaduct located in County Waterford. It is one of the attractions of the Waterford Greenway, a green cycle route with many tourist sites as stopover points. Visitors can climb the viaduct and enjoy the view. The place is splendid!
The Kilmacthomas Viaduct dates from 1878. It used to allow the transit of goods by rail. Closed in 1982, it has now become a tourist site. It must be said that it is a fine example of 19th century construction.
Thus, the viaduct is in the form of 7 rubble stone arches. Built from limestone blocks, it combines arches, voussoirs, and parapets, which gives it a massive, solid, and timeless appearance.
Nowadays, you can climb the viaduct. It’s all about the beauty of the view at the top! A lovely spot, in the middle of the Irish countryside, conducive to peace and quiet. Icing on the cake: access is free!
