“Lovely drive”
Review of Comeragh Drive

Comeragh Drive
Ranked #9 of 59 things to do in Waterford
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 August 2012

Right at the top, where the vee between hill is visible is the Bianconi staging post where they kept the carriage horses and ponies, the first public transport company in ireland. It's a pity there isn't more information on the Bianconi family here. Call in to Mt Melleray on the way back an have a look at the church and grounds.

This drive is highly recommended and enables one to sample the countryside and views. The drive is not difficult but the narrow lanes might be a problem for those not used to such roads. Be careful in the car park in the mountains as locals warned me about theft.

We did part of this drive on a very, very, misty day. We couldn't find the Mahon waterfalls- perhaps the sign for the correct carpark was gone, & certainly the views were obstructed. But we did see a rock on the side of the road with MAGIC ROAD carved into in, near the Rag Tree (rather small, woody, covered in hanging 'offerings') We were a bit lost as to where to start, then realized that was the spot where you stopped the car & put it into neutral. Then the car starts going UP the road by itself, gaining some speed as it goes. The car finally stops by a 2nd Magic Road sign stone. We did it with the car turned both directions, & going backwards was really unnerving! We are 2 adults & we were squealing & laughing--imagine kids would really love it! I reckon if the day was better weather wise the views would be gorgeous- as it was it was lovely, with sheep on the road posing for photos, & wildflowers in bloom. I'd say the Magic Road is a must do even on a yukky weather day--it is an experience like no other!
