Waterford Greenway

The Waterford Greenway opens up our beautiful county like never before. The vision behind the Greenway and the investment that has gone into it over the past few years provides a gateway to the Waterford countryside that will enrich the lives of so many for generations to come. It has to be said… we’re so privileged to have it on our doorstep here in Waterford.

There is something so refreshingly positive about the Greenway experience. The buzz of excitement in Kilmeaden as children feverishly board the train onto the Waterford and Suir Valley Railway, the infectious smiles from passers-by you have never met before, the relaxed chatter of cyclists as they meander their way en route to their next coffee break… people move to a different rhythm on the Greenway.

We’ve started to blend a Greenway cycle into our Waterford Camino experience and our visitors love it. Starting from the Durrow Car Park at O’ Mahony’s, we cycle at a leisurely pace into Dungarvan and take time to absorb all that we survey along the way. Life feels good as you rest the limbs over lunch and take in all that this beautiful town has to offer.

We’d be lost without our very own ‘Greenway Man’, Garvan Cummins. He has the bike to suit everybody and if there’s a breakdown, he’s always at hand.

As you cycle, you leave the world as you know it and are transported to a different space, a sphere beyond our normal consciousness. Adjusting to the radiant hues as we leave the dimmed enchantment of Durrow Tunnel behind, surveying the panoramic vista that awaits us as we free wheel towards Clonea, witnessing the joyful anticipation on the faces of children and adults alike as they take this magical odyssey for the first time… you feel liberated to be part of it all.
