Waterford is the capital of the sunny South East

Why Waterford? A natural playground for golf, equestrian, walking, angling, water sports and cycling enthusiasts, Waterford has so much to offer. The county offers a dazzling coastline, the Waterford Greenway, beautiful river valleys and two dramatic ranges of very accessible mountains. Our recently established Greenway provides the perfect opportunity to explore our beautiful coastline and countryside. If work/life balance and the cost of living are the rationale for moving, then Waterford should be top of your list. The cost of living in Waterford is significantly lower than in Dublin.
