Graze your way along the 46km Waterford Greenway off-road cycling and walking trail along an old railway line between Waterford and Dungarvan. While the trail and it's beautiful hinterland are available to enjoy any day - on this day, we bring the food and drink that is grown, sourced and made all around you onto the trail itself, to tempt, nourish and thrill you along the way. Learn about and enjoy the food & drink of this fertile hinterland, from the Mountains to the Sea. From Ireland's oldest Port in Waterford, learn about the firsts of Irish food & drink, including Coffee House Lane. Meet producers and enjoy their wares on the old station platforms along the way: Along the Siur Valley, at Mount Congreve's beautiful gardens, at the village of Kilmacthomas, and at Durrow's old station. Meet Flahavans near the viaduct looking down at their Mill. On one side the lamb on the Comeragh Mountains, and the other , the sea shores and its harvest (think seaweed and the Sea Gardener, or Harty Oysters). While the Strawberries from Durrow might be eaten by the autumn, there are loads of other berries, fruits and veg. and of course the Blaa. Apart from meeting the producers and enjoying their wares, a chef or two might pop along and show us how they love to work with all of this great food and drink their way. #WaterfordWay This event is part of Taste the Island.
