Waterford Deise Greenway
Waterford City and County Council are developing the old Waterford to Dungarvan railway line into a world-class Greenway, just minutes via car, 5 minutes by cycling or 30 minutes’ walk from Gold Coast Golf Resort Hotel.
The picturesque Waterford Greenway hugs the coastline as it follows old railway lines from Waterford City, through the foothills of the Comeragh Mountains and onto the pretty harbour town of Dungarvan. The world class greenway is a 46km route waiting to be explored with plenty of pit-stops, beautiful views and attractions along the way and just minutes from the Gold Coast Golf Resort. You can walk part of the way, cycle in both directions or cycle one way and get the bus back to our starting location.
Exploring the Greenway
The Waterford Greenway stretches from Dungarvan to the ancient city of Wateford, across 11 bridges, 3 viaducts, and a 400-meter tunnel. Discover some spectacular sceneries along the Deise Greenway path such as Walton Park Dungarvan, Clonea Beach, Dungarvan Bay, Ballyvoyle Tunnel & Viaduct, Durrow Viaduct and Kilmacthomas Viaduct to name just a few. There are so many gems along the way.
