The Waterford Greenway

Running along a route in Ireland’s Ancient East that is rich in Irish heritage, the Waterford greenway is a beautiful walking & cycling path and is a great way to explore the lush outdoors of Ireland. Unwind as you take in the spectacular views along the way, from railway viaducts to the famous Ballyvoyle tunnel, from Kilmacthomas Workhouse to an Ice Age rock with a fascinating myth.

The Waves of Tramore Collection depicts the round capped sand dunes, the rolling waves lapping against the beach and colliding with the turn of the tide in the seaside town of Tramore. The town is situated on the north-western corner of Tramore Bay on a hill that slopes down to the strand, or sand spit, that divides the bay. The Sea Horse was adopted as the symbol of the town of Tramore and was later adopted as the logo for Waterford Crystal in 1955.
