Dungarvan is a harbour town located at the heart of County Waterford on the doorstep of the Comeragh mountains with its breathtaking waterfall and country wide view of the sunny south east. It has many pretty beaches nearby, as well as being adjacent to the World Heritage Copper Coast. On the other side of town in the areas known as An Rinn (pronounced Ring) is a Gaeltacht or Gaelic speaking area which is renowned for its traditional Irish music and steeped in Irish history and folklore.
Coastal drives are very popular along the scenic copper coastline.
