Dungarvan located on the mouth of the Colligan river and with the Comeragh Mountains in the background, the town has much to offer with miles of clean sandy beach for a family day out. Grattan Square is the central point of the town, where many shops can be explored for the perfect gift.
There is a wide range of activities to choose from such as horse riding, fishing in the lakes and rivers, tennis to pitch and putt. We have three magnificent Championship golf courses to choose from.

This lovely, wild area on the western shores of Dungarvan Bay is the heart of An Gaeltacht - an area where the Irish language is the first language of the people. The area contains An Cuinigear, a long, pencil-slim peninsula in Dungarvan Bay which hosts a huge variety of seabirds.
Colaiste na Rinne, an Irish language college, attracts many students of the language for both summer and full term courses.
Crafts in the area include fine cut crystal at Criostal na Rinne and Irish Wildlife Mobiles in Sean Phobal.
Helvic is a tiny, but important fishing port and the nearby Ceann Heilbhic (Helvic Head) commands wonderful views over the bay and Waterford coastline, with the dramatic backdrop of the Comeragh Mountains.
