Getting around
Located in a quiet, rural part of south east Ireland - the village of Foulksmills (or Foulkesmill as it is sometimes spelt) was recently described as a 'hidden gem' with its tranquil setting. A beautiful area to walk around, however a car is needed to get to some of the top tourist spots e.g. Hook Lighthouse and of course Loftus Hall - Ireland's best known 'Haunted House' - tours available from April to September daily. Cyclists can easily head to Kilmore Quay for a wonderful day at this seaside fishing village - taking the 'Norman Route'. Also the greenway from Waterford is now open & the option to cycle from Waterford to Dungarvan town is a must for active holidaymakers.
