The Copper Coast Geopark coastline
Back to home page

Welcome to the website of the
Copper European Geopark!

The Copper Coast European Geopark is located
on the South East coast of Ireland,
between Tramore and Dungarvan in County Waterford.
It extends between Fenor in the east to
Stradbally in the west and up to Dunhill in the north.

The Copper Coast gets its name from the
19th Century copper mines that lie at its heart.
It comprises some 25 kilometres of spectacular coastline
consisting of scalloped beaches and coves
buttressed and enclosed by rocky headlands.

Oceans, volcanoes, deserts and ice sheets
all combined to create the rocks, which provide the
physical foundation of the natural and cultural
landscapes of the Copper Coast.


The aim of this website is to present the
different facets of the heritage (natural, built and cultural)
and the activities (education, tourism, events)
of the Geopark, and to invite you to
visit this beautiful area of the South East of Ireland,
also called the Sunny South East
