Destination guide

You don't need a shamrock to have the craic in Waterford

Shamrocks and pints of the black stuff might be among the things that immediately spring to mind when someone mentions Ireland, but scratch the surface and you'll discover a fascinating country ripe for exploration. It won't take long for thoughts of rugged cliffs, cozy pubs, ancient monuments, and days at the races to get under your skin—that's the Emerald Isle weaving its magic. Waterford County vacation rentals might be a world away from the bright lights of Dublin, but there's plenty going on around Ireland's south coast to keep even the most active visitors content.

Things to do

Do an Irish jig from one historic site to the next

If stories from the past get you going, Ireland is the place for you. You'll find that Waterford County vacation rentals are plentiful, and wherever you stay you won't be far from a historical site. Pay a visit to Dungarvan Castle, a 12th-century fort near the River Colligan. You might also find time to explore the ruins of St. Declan's Monastery, one of the country's earliest monastic sites. Take a guided factory tour around House of Waterford Crystal, before enjoying an afternoon of family fun at Ardmore Open Farm and Mini Zoo. Feeling lucky? You're guaranteed a great day out at Waterford and Tramore Racecourse.


Get your game face on, there's Celtic adventuring to be had

You'd better have had your full Irish breakfast, because you'll certainly need the energy. How about kicking off the day with a kayak tour around sea stacks off the coast of Stradbally, before heading to Tramore Beach for an exhilarating horse ride along the sands? The Waterford Greenway runs for 29 miles along an old railway line between Waterford and Dungarvan, allowing cyclists a relaxed way to explore the county's stunning countryside on 2 wheels. You can cap things off with a well-deserved pint and a live music session at The Hub in Waterford city center.


Lush, verdant landscapes with a side of rainfall

There's only one way Ireland manages to stay looking so lush and green, so if you're traveling to County Waterford be sure to pack waterproofs, no matter the season. The winter period generally sees rainfall up to 15 days a month, so it pays to be prepared. Your best chance of seeing the sun bounce off Coumshingaun Lough is between June and September, when temperatures typically peak in the mid-60s. Things stay fairly mild throughout the rest of the year, with lows of around 35 degrees in midwinter. As usual, look for Waterford County vacation rentals outside of the school holidays to secure the best deals.

Natural features

A whole lot of countryside just waiting to be explored

You don't need to travel far from Waterford's city center to find yourself in the heart of rural Ireland. Hike up to the Mahon Falls near Lemybrien and you'll be treated to dramatic views across the Comeragh Mountains. The area around Dunmore East is known for its colonies of kittiwakes, while avid birders will also find plenty to focus their binoculars on at Knockaderry Reservoir. Clonea Beach lies just outside of Dungarvan, and it's a great option if you're planning relaxed strolls on the sand.
