Introducing Dunmore East
Some 19km southeast of Waterford, Dunmore East (Dún Mór) is strung out along a coastline of red sandstone cliffs full of screaming kittiwakes and concealed coves. In the 19th century, the town was a station for the steam packets that carried mail between England and the south of Ireland. Legacies left include picturesque thatched cottages lining the main street and an unusual Doric lighthouse (1825) overlooking the working harbour.
