Exploring Wonderful Walks of the Comeragh Mountains

If you're a fan of the outdoors, enjoy hiking and taking in some vast, stunning views, then The Comeragh Mountains should definitely be on your to-do list for your next trip to Waterford. This time of the year it can be a little chilly, but once you layer up you should be good to go!

The Comeragh Mountains are an impressive range in Waterford, stretching from the coast of Dungarvan inland to Clonmel. They make for the perfect location for a quick stroll or a full day of mountain exploration. There are a number of different routes you can take - The Coumshingaun Lake Walk and The Crouhan Walk to name a few. 

Nestled within the Comeragh range, visitors can find the idyllic 80 metre waterfall - Mahon Falls. Surrounded by sheer rock faces and inhabited with an abundance of goats and sheep, the falls are located close to the village of Lemybrien and make for a walk to remember with the perfect backdrop to capture some picture-perfect memories. 

On the way to Mahon Falls, explorers will come across 'The Magic Road'. Legend has it that if you stop at the bottom of the hill after you spot a 'Fairy Tree' covered in rags, put your car in neutral and the car will roll back up the hill! Find out if this is myth or magic for yourself!
