The Waterford Greenway was officially open as of Saturday March 25th 2017 and is the longest off-road walking and cycling route in Ireland. It stretches 46km from Waterford City to Dungarvan along the former Great Southern and Western Railway line.
The Waterford Greenway is a spectacular 46km off-road cycling and walking trail along an old railway line between Waterford and Dungarvan. Enjoy a beautiful journey across three tall viaducts from the river to the sea. On your way you can find a place for lunch or also just a coffee – even a pub is on the trail. During the Summer months, there will be various pop-up-shops along the route. Bikes can be hired at Hanover street in Waterford. Dogs on a short lead are allowed on the trail. Shuttle busses are available in Dungarvan, Kilmacthomas and Waterford.
The route features eleven bridges, three viaducts and a 400-metre tunnel and takes in Waterford City, Mount Congreve, Kilmeaden, Kilmacthomas, Shanacool, Scartore and Dungarvan.
It is a must do when it comes to visiting the South East and Treacys Hotel have you covered when it comes to renting or storing your bikes. You can either hire a bike onsite or store your own bikes in our secure bike room. Set off to discover the Greenway whenever you please and return for a home cooked meal and a well-deserved rest.
