Waterford Greenway open from Kilmacthomas to Dungarvan
Waterford Greenway is now partly open with the 23km stretch from Kilmacthomas to Dungarvan accessible for walkers and cyclists alike . The Waterford city part will open early next year in the spring right on time for the summer season.
The Waterford Greenway, when fully open, will be a spectacular 46 km off-road cycling and walking trail along the old railway line which ran from Waterford city to Dungarvan.
We thought we’d share with you a few videos and links with you to show you what you can expect. Showing you some of the beauty that you will witness along the way. To view an interactive map of the Waterford Greenway click HERE
