Countryside Drive & Irish Pub
Duration: 4 hours
Tour Code: WAT-005
Enjoy a picturesque afternoon drive admiring the local countryside on this leisurely tour that is topped off with a pub visit.
Traveling from Waterford by coach, you will head towards the Comeragh Mountains, the backbone of Waterford. A turn southward brings you to the dramatic Atlantic coast road that will have you winding around cliff tops and passing by some charming coastal villages. Just west of Tramore you will start to notice a more rugged coastline. Serving as a fine example of a Victorian seaside resort, the name Tramore derives from the Gaelic and means large beach. The town flourished from the 1850's when it was linked to Waterford by the railway. Today, Tramore is a fast-growing town and, aside from its status as a vacation spot, is also known for horse racing, golfing and surfing.
During your visit in Tramore, you will be invited into a local country pub to enjoy a cool beverage while a local musician entertains you with traditional songs.
Before returning to the pier, you will journey into the Viking City of Waterford and enjoy a panoramic drive along the banks of the River Suir.
Please note: This tour includes minimal walking and is available to guests who utilize a collapsible wheelchair, can make their own way on and off the coach and have a companion to assist them. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. Weather appropriate clothing and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested. Guests should be prepared for the possibility of rain. The order of the sights viewed or visited may vary.
