Discover the Waterford Greenway and Its Surroundings with Our Bikes

Waterford Greenway Cycle Tours & Bike Hire offer premium bike hires and Greenway shuttle bus service covering the full Waterford Greenway. We have three super convenient bike pick-up locations, all with direct Greenway access for safety and peace of mind. We also specialize in corporate groups and schools packages.

Our new location in Waterford City at No.2 Gratton Quay is delightful. It’s at the very start of the Greenway, and you won’t encounter any traffic along the quays, which are very important for families.

Waterford Greenway Bike Hire offer reliable, affordable hires of quality bikes on the Waterford Greenway.

This is a beautiful 46-kilometre cycle route along an old railway line between Waterford City and Dungarvan. Our wide range of bikes for hire means that you can pick the perfect bicycles for everyone in your group.

We have mountain bikes, road bikes, hybrids, electric bikes, kids’ bikes, and trailers for young children available for hire.

We also offer a free shuttle bus service so you don’t have to cycle there and back. Pick a trip and a distance that suits you.

The Waterford-Dungarvan Railway

Long disused but once famously scenic, the Waterford-Dungarvan railway has been converted into a truly stunning cycle and walking route. The first section, from Kilmacthomas to Dungarvan, was reopened in 2016, and 2017 saw the Kilmacthomas to Waterford section completed.

The full route is almost 45 kilometres long and has a hard surface all the way. The route is a mix of a coastal and inland section and offers breathtaking views.

The remains of old railway infrastructure, such as the Durrow/Stradbally signal box, can still be found along the route, providing added interest for the railway buff!

In places, the Waterford Greenway runs alongside the Waterford and Suir Valley narrow gauge railway.

Along the Waterford Greenway, there are some stunning sights:

  • The world-famous Mount Congreve Gardens (directly accessible from the Greenway)
  • The Durrow 7-arch Viaduct
  • The Kilmacthomas 8-arch stone viaduct
  • The Ballyvoyle brick-lined tunnel
  • The lovely town of Dungarvan, with its stunning views across Dungarvan Bay
