Kinsale of the East
Since the opening of the Waterford Greenway, Dungarvan has boomed. And when a town booms, lots of new companies open. So Dungarvan is now packed full of wonderful boutiques, coffee shops and little cafes. Plus it looks onto one of the most beautiful views in county Waterford. So if you are looking for a classy town with some great personality, Dungarvan will tick the box. And of course it has the famous Tannery cookery school.
Dungarvan's nightlife has always been great and nothing new to the people of Waterford. As a busy town its nightlife is also buzzy with plenty of spots for a cocktail or a good dance. It's sixteen pubs and gastro pubs will leave your hen party spoilt for choice. Most pubs there have music at the weekends and after that its head to the night clubs. Plus during the summer there is the Dungarvan festival of food which sees the place light up.
So what we really love about Dungarvan is it is that perfect distance from Cork, Limerick or Waterford for a hen. Just the right distance that you feel like you are far away from home to let your hair down. But really not that far in a car that you need to spend the day travelling. Cos who wants that!
