Visit the Waterford Greenway

A 46km long green cycle route from Waterford to Dungarvan.

The Waterford Greenway is a particularly popular greenway for nature-loving sportsmen and cyclists. It is an opportunity to swap your car for a bike and enjoy a variety of unique experiences!

Sport, cultural discoveries, breathtaking panoramas… This circuit promises you an adventure on a human scale, where you get back to the essentials, far from modern day-to-day life.

The tour starts in Waterford, where you can visit the city before getting on your bike. Then on to Kilmacthomas and Dungarvan, where you will be able to…

The tour can be completed in 2 days by taking your time. Please note that there are many depots where you can rent a bike on the way. Possibility to stop at any other depot to return your bike if you wish to stop the tour earlier than planned.

The tour is full of all kinds of tourist activities: ruined castles, bays, beaches, museums, irish pubs, restaurants, and Dungarvan Castle. There’s plenty to see and the views are sublime.

Among the must-sees, let’s especially note:

Another advantage is that although the Waterford Greenway is popular, it remains little frequented, for optimum enjoyment.

The level of cycling required is more than acceptable. With a length of 46 km, it is suitable for the whole family, as long as you take your time and are well equipped.

Don’t hesitate to book accommodation on your route at the stopover points. Many local bed and breakfasts welcome cyclists for one or more nights, breakfast included.
