There are spectacular views of the coastline on all approaches to Dunmore East, across to Hook Head Lighthouse and the village makes the most of this natural attribute. The built environment of the village is quite traditional, split in to the lower ‘strand’ area and the upper ‘harbour’ area. Shopping is quite minimal. The main selling point of Dunmore East is the coastline, for its beaches and scenic golf courses.

Easily accessible by car, it is one hour from Cork airport; two hours from Dublin airport. Suirway operate a regular bus service from Waterford city to Dunmore East. It’s well sign-posted and main roads all the way to Dunmore East. It’s a relatively small, compact village; most amenities are within walking distance, and it’s a pleasant place to walk around.

Accommodation and food are reasonably priced and aimed towards the family market. There is reasonably priced good food in The Bay Cafe and The Lemon Tree Cafe.
