Copper Coast European Geopark

The Copper Coast European Geopark is located on the South East coast of
Ireland, between Tramore and Dungarvan in County Waterford. It extends
between Fenor in the east to Stradbally in the west and up to Dunhill in the north.

The Copper Coast gets its name from the 19th Century copper mines that lie
at its heart.

It comprises some 25 kilometres of spectacular coastline consisting of
scalloped beaches and coves buttressed and enclosed by rocky headlands.
