About the Waterford Greenway

The Old railway line from Waterford City to Dungarvan is a spectacular 46km off-road cycling and walking trail known as the Waterford Greenway which travels through time and nature across eleven bridges, three tall viaducts and a long atmospheric tunnel, all the way from the river to the sea. The Granville Hotel is the ideal base for a visit to the Waterford Greenway with the starting point a short walk/cycle from the hotel.
