I‘ll be the first to admit that I’ve overlooked Waterford for far too long.

It’s never been intentional, but I’ve never spent much time exploring the county, which is criminal considering it’s just a couple of hours drive from where I live.

The fact is, there’s a nearly endless number of brilliant things to do in Waterford to tickle the fancy of every type of explorer.

So, without further delay (aka to avoid me talking sh1te any longer) welcome to our 2-day Waterford road trip guide.

Here's what you'll get if you keep reading
  • A detailed 2-day road trip guide that contains a full itinerary with things to do
  • Recommendations for where to stay
  • A guide on where to eat, get coffeeeeeeeee and drink (the pub kinda drink, that is)
  • Note: you’ll notice that we haven’t included the Waterford Greenway  in this guide. If you have an extra day, you should definitely squeeze this in!

Still need convincing? Here’s a look at some of the places we’ll be visiting over the next two days.
