Waterford Beaches

If you’re lucky enough to be in Waterford on a sunny day, enjoy a stroll hand in hand through the sand at one of Waterford’s beautiful beaches. Popular with locals and holidaymakers alike, Tramore is one of the most popular parts of the east coast of Ireland. There are lots of things to do along the waterfront with bars, restaurants, amusements and casinos and more. Every possible leisure activity is catered for in the town itself or in the surrounding areas. For a quieter day on the beach, head to the lesser-known Woodstown Beach, a safe and sandy beach that also has the remains of a Viking settlement to explore.

Cliff Walk in Dunmore East

What could be more romantic than admiring the views from the side of a cliff hand in hand? On your romantic break in Waterford, enjoy a cliffside walk in the beautiful Dunmore East, enjoying some of the finest views on Ireland’s East Coast. The linear walk is a very manageable 4km there and back, but fitter couples may enjoy a more challenging 15 km hike beyond Portally Cove to Rathmoylan Cove and onto Ballymacaw Cove. Make it extra special and pack a picnic to enjoy at one of the many scenic spots along the way.

Visit Ardmore

Ardmore is a seaside resort and fishing village in Waterford, a short drive from the city. It’s one of the most picturesque and beautiful places to spend an afternoon enjoying the views and the company of the one you love. There is plenty of heritage and beauty to enjoy in Ardmore including Ardmore Cathedral and Round Tower, St Declan’s Well and Oratory, Goat Island and the wonderful Ardmore Beach. There are lots of independent shops and cafes to grab lunch on the go or stop in a pub and enjoy a Waterford welcome. It’s a sleepy town with winding lanes, idyllic walks, and thatched cottages and it’s a perfect spot for a romantic day trip from Waterford.

Waterford City

We’re big fans of Waterford City and the varied history and heritage all around. We have everything you need for a romantic getaway which includes museums, shopping, restaurants, bars and more. Just outside of the city, enjoy a cycle around the magnificent Waterford Greenway or a visit to Mount Congreve Gardens. Learn more about the history of Ireland’s Oldest City with a walk around the Viking Triangle or pop into Waterford Crystal to pick up a souvenir of a great weekend together.
