About County Waterford

Great beaches, pretty villages and sublime scenery make Waterford a top choice

Waterford might be renowned the world-over for its exquisite crystal, but there’s a lot more to this county than just cut glass. With an ideal mix of mountain, beaches and urban excitement, Waterford is a county unlike any other in Ireland.

Its superb position on Ireland’s sunny south east coast means that beaches are a real highlight in Waterford, with clear pristine waters and spectacular surroundings.

Many of Waterford’s prettiest villages sit perched on the edge of beautiful bays, while the towns of Lismore, Cappoquin and Ballymacarbry are nestled into quiet, tranquil Nire Valley.
