Waterford

Ireland Map

Six miles west of the friendly town of Dún Garbhán (Dungarvan) and overlooking Dungarvan Harbour and Muggort's Bay lies the small coastal Gaeltacht area of Waterford. Nestling against the backdrop of the lovely Comeragh Mountains this Gaeltacht region embraces the Parish of Rinn Ua gCuanach (Ring) and An Sean Phobal (Old Parish). It is a world apart, in its welcoming people, its scenery, its landscapes, seascapes and above all its cultural vitality. The love of Irish music, song, dance and language is infectious in An Rinn. A spontaneous desire to share tradition with the visitor can erupt at any time in any of the welcoming local hostelries. An Rinn is home to founding members of the internationally acclaimed Irish music group, Danú and world famous singer, writer and Irish folklorist Liam Clancy.
