A Description Of Waterford
County Waterford, on the south coast, combines many kinds of beauty in its scenery. Much of the north and centre of the county is mountainous, including the Comeragh range with its fine lake corries; the rest consists mainly of gentle hills and valleys. The coastline is a series of rugged headlands, cliffs and sand-fringed bays; Tramore is the best known of several attractive resorts.
On the north and east the county is bordered by the pleasant River Suir; in the west the Blackwater Valley, with its flanking hills and numerous wooded stretches, provides the finest river scenery in Ireland. The River Blackwater rises in County Kerry and flows eastwards through Cork and Waterford, turning southwards at Cappoquin to flow in Youghal Bay by a narrow
estuary 15 miles long. The most beautiful part of the river is in County Waterford - from near Fermoy (County Cork) past Ballyduff, Lismore and Cappoquin to Youghal.
