Neighbourhood overview: Ardmore is a seaside resort and fishing village in County Waterford, Ireland, situated on the South Coast between the towns of Youghal and Dungarvan. Quiet and tranquil for most of the year, the village springs into life during the summer months with visitors from all over the country and further afield taking the time to soak in the atmosphere of one of Ireland’s loveliest getaways. With a great selection of beaches, walks, watersports, cultural and general family activities, it’s easy to see why Ardmore is so popular. For centuries Ardmore has been dominated by the 97 foot tall tower that overlooks it. The Round Tower dates from the 12th century and is one of the best preserved examples of this type of building in the country. Alongside it are two other historically notable buildings, the Cathedral and St Declan’s Oratory. The Cathedral was built in the 13th century with one of its outer walls featuring carvings retrieved from an earlier 9th century building. The renowned Cliff Walk has got to be one of the most spectacular walks in the country with breathtaking views over Ardmore Bay on one side and out towards Youghal Bay and Caple Island on the other. The walk is best started from your front door! Turn left or right as you exit and you're already on the route and will end back at your front door! Head just behind behind the Cliff House Hotel, at which point marker posts can be followed along the route and back to the village. On the way you’ll have loads to keep you occupied starting with St Declan’s Hermitage, and leading to the wreck of the Samson, a watchtower dating from Napoleonic times, a World War II look-out post, and a well on the cliffside called Fr O’Donnell’s Well. No visit to Ardmore is complete without walking this route. So give yourself an hour or two to do it and you won’t be sorry. No need to point out the beach as it is directly in front of your accommodation, with lots of other fabulous beaches including romantic goat island and tranquil Ballyquinn. Because it faces South East, Ardmore Bay is relatively sheltered making it an ideal place for watersports - swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing or indeed diving off the pier or boat cove (if you are brave enough). Getting around: There are bus routes to Ardmore and you have ample parking and or bike storage. However Ardmore is best experienced on foot as you amble from pottery shop to arts and crafts, from michelin star dining to the wonderful White Horses, from pub to heritage site and your choice of beaches.
