Outside the city in County Waterford you will find  over 90 miles of coastline with 49 different beaches, spread over two peninsulas.  Both are very different with the coast to the south west being wild and rugged, whilst the coast to the east is much calmer and contains the seaside resort of Dunmore East.  Further inland, the scenery is dominated by the mountain ranges of Comeragh and Monavullagh, the mountain resort of Ballymacarby provides excellent leisure facilities here with the Nire Valley having walking tracks for walkers of every level of experience.

For those wishing to explore the area a little more leisurely there are several planned drives around Waterford taking in various local sights, one in particular explores the area to the south west, travelling from Waterford to Dungarvan along the “Copper Coast” and returning via Lismore and Ballyduff where there is excellent fishing for salmon and sea trout.
