Introducing Ring Peninsula

Just 15 minutes' drive from Dungarvan, the Ring Peninsula (An Rinn, meaning 'the headland') is one of Ireland's best-known Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) areas. En route, views of the Comeragh Mountains, Dungarvan Bay and the Copper Coast drift away to the northeast. You can easily spend a day exploring quiet country lanes here, with the promise of a hidden beach or fine old trad pub around the next bend in the road.

Ex-Waterford Crystal worker Eamonn Terry returned home to the peninsula to set up his own workshop, Criostal na Rinne, where you can buy deep-prismatic-cut, full-lead crystal vases, bowls, clocks, jewellery and even chandeliers.
