Waterford Greenway is a spectacular 46 km off-road cycling and walking trail along an old railway line which runs between Waterford and Dungarvan. From the Viking City alongside the River Suir, out by Mount Congreve Gardens, through Kilmacthomas, across eleven bridges, over three impressive viaducts and through a 400m long tunnel; with wonderful views of the Comeragh Mountains and Dungarvan Bay.

A great place to walk or cycle, the West Waterford side (Kilmacthomas to Dungarvan) has the nicer views. Only downside is that it can get very busy and there are some inconsiderate dog owners who don't keep their dogs on leads at all times.
