County Waterford is situated in Ireland’s sunny south-east. The county has a gentle, lush landscape of pastureland, valleys and mountain ranges, bordered by a delightful coastline of sandy beaches with high dunes.
Waterford city itself is Ireland’s oldest city dating back to the Vikings, so the county is steeped in history evidenced by the castles, old forts, period houses and cathedrals everywhere.
The blue flag beaches at Dunmore East, Tramore and Dungarvan makes this a firm favourite summer holiday destination for families. The Suir and Blackwater rivers are famous with fishermen, and hiking and walking in the Comeragh and Knockmealdown mountain ranges is a popular pastime with visitors.
Attractions include Waterford Crystal, Lismore Castle, and the Nire Valley. Waterford has boundaries with Tipperary, Kilkenny and Wexford, making this a great base for touring the South East.
Our selection of holiday homes in locations such as the charming fishing village of Dunmore East, the lovely Faithlegg House and further west in the vibrant, seaside town of Dungarvan, are ideal for visitors to Waterford.
