Discover Co. Waterford’s unique mountains and food producers
Co. Waterford has an incredible backdrop – the Comeragh and Knockmealdown Mountains. With spectacular views, mountain lakes, and a distinctive mix of heather, grasses, herbs and animals, it’s no wonder some of our celebrated producers make it home.
To give you a true understanding of what it’s like to live and work in this stunning landscape, we’ve created the Mountain Splendour Taste Tour.
From our passionate producers, you’ll hear food stories passed down through the generations, and understand what gives mountain lamb its unique taste.
You’ll also get to forage on a mountain trail, and hear why sustainable farming is important in this traditional setting.
Your personal tour guide will offer a unique insight into folklore and mountain life, and you’ll taste food that can only come from Co. Waterford’s mountains.
