Shortly after leaving Dungarvan, cyclists head towards Waterford’s Gaeltacht (Irish speaking area) around An Rinn and An Sean Phobal. The coastal scenery is simply stunning in this location. A trip towards Ceann Heilbhic is well worth the extra effort. Upon leaving the Gaeltacht area you will arrive into the seaside village of Ardmore famous for its ancient Cathedral and Round Tower site over looking the village. Ardmore has a wonderful beach and the 4 km Cliff Walk is worth a visit at any time of year. Ardmore is also the end point for pilgrims who undertake the 115km pilgrim path between Cashel, Co. Tipperary and Ardmore, Co. Waterford.
Heading west out of Ardmore, cyclists head for the village of Kinsalebeg and then onto the area of Ardsallagh where wonderful views of the River Blackwater Estuary are afforded, with its rich history and heritage. Shortly after crossing Youghal Bridge cyclists can continue their onward journey into the town of Youghal in Co. Cork.
