They met several years ago when they were both working on one of the luxury cruise lines, fell in love, and came back to Waterford giving us this delightful eatery. The food is genuinely Italian. Waterford now hosts a number of Italian eateries, and they...

This treasured window is immediately on your left as you come through the cathedral's main entrance. It's composition is very simple but the jewelled colours are exquisite. The man with the sword...

    Tramore Things to Do

    One of the "dangers" for adults is to bring a bunch of kids to Tramore for a day. I say "dangerous" with my tongue in my cheeck as the only danger it poses is to your poscket and your patience.The reason for the danger is the enormous park full of Disney-like rides and amusements for little and big kids alike.When I was growing up in the '70's the...

    Tramore has something to amuse every age group and perhaps the most popular of all entertainments in Tramore are the Casinos. The majority of them are along Strand Road (the main street down to the beach) and you simply cannot miss them.When we were younger we used to call these gaming halls "the amusements" and it was only when I eventually got to...

    Ardmore Restaurants

    This is a great restaurant in the middle of Ardmore village (well everything is, there's only one street in the village). It has an varied and delicious menu and a great selection of deserts. It is quiet expensive but great quality, worth it if you feel like a treat. I had the lobster and it was one of the best meals i ever had. My friends had the...

    The Ardmore Tower is located on a hill overlooking the sea. The remnants of St. Declans Oratory and an old cemetary are also located here. Some of the gravestones have been worn down to nothing more than small stones protruding from the ground.

    Passage East Things to Do

    Believe it or not, I didn't know that a beach existed in this village until last Sunday - even though I have lived all my life within 5 miles of the village! To get to this very pretty beach you take a left turn as you drive out of the village in the direction on Woodstown. The turn is difficult to see but it's right opposite the laneway that leads...

    The townland that gave its name to the expression "By Hook or by Crooke" is also the home of one of the prettiest little Churches in Ireland. Perched high on a hill, looking down over the harbour, is the picturesque Crooke Church. Be prepared to see mountain goats clambering around it or, as I did when I stopped to take pics, block the mountain...

  • SabrinaSummerville's Profile Photo

    by SabrinaSummerville Written May 3, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Harney's pub in Dunhill is a legend in its own location.

    As the only pub in Dunhill it is ruled with an iron hand by the wild haired Jim Harney for as long as I can remember.

    Typical of a country pub, there's still the black painted stone floor and the ancient wooden chairs and stools; add in a big open fire and a dartboard and you might just start getting the picture. There's an outside marquee area for smokers as smoking is not allowed inside Irish pubs.

    Sunday lunch is typicl meat and two veg. I haven't eaten here in many years, but the food still looked good when I had a couple of drinks here two weeks ago.

    It's a very popular place for people to gather when racing finishes in nearby Tramore and the place is seldom quiet.

    Favorite Dish: As with many country pubs there's a little shop attached to the pub and here they sell sliced home cooked ham which is hugely in demand and very tasty indeed between a couple of slices of bread after a Sunday afternoon in the pub:-)

    Cappoquin Things to Do

    One of the great pleasures of visiting small Irish towns is that they often have streets that have not suffered from modern 'development'. Thus the buildings - and especially the shop fronts - may have been adapted a little over the years but are essentially what they were a century or more ago. Cappoquin is not one of those places which falls into...
