The Waterford Copper Coast

You can’t miss out on the scenic highlight of our short tour of County Waterford. The Copper Coast, a UNESCO Global Geopark, is a real gem. Named after the metal-mining industries of the past, the Copper Coast, only 30 minutes from Waterford city ranges from Fenor to Stradbally. While that’s only 25 kilometres, it’s 25 kilometres of panoramic seascapes, cliffs, bays, and coves. The Copper Coast Road, the R675 stretching from Dungarvan to Tramore, is considered to be one of the most beautiful scenic drives in the world but another great way to see the Copper Coast is sea kayaking in and out of the old copper cliff shafts. In fact, The Copper Coast makes the perfect day trip when you’re staying with Travelodge Ireland Hotels in Waterford City.
