Saoirse City Tour

Our Waterford city cycling tour starts in the emerging Cultural Quarter, home to the architectural legacy of John Roberts and some amazing street art, courtesy of Waterford Walls. ​

We will then cycle along the river Suir to learn about Waterford’s rich maritime history. On the way, you’ll hear the thrilling story of Thomas Francis Meagher, one of the leaders of the 1848 revolution. If we’re lucky, we may encounter a Hobbit in their hidden house

Heading off the beaten track, we will pay a visit the People’s Park, transformed from an ‘oozy marsh’ to a glorious example of a 19th century public space. We then travel back further in time to uncover the locations of the surviving portions of the city’s once extensive fortifications, some dating back to the 10th century. 

Our leisurely spin culminates in the Viking Triangle home to the House of Waterford Crystal, Christchurch Cathedral, the Bishop’s Palace Museum, Reginald’s Tower and the Vadrarfjordr, a replica Viking longboat. 

Saoirse Greenway Tour

Cycling the Waterford Greenway is on the top of everyone’s wish list. Don’t leave Waterford without giving it a go.

Waterford Greenway is arguably the most scenic off-road cycling experience in Ireland. Linking Waterford city and the vibrant harbour town of Dungarvan, the Greenway is based on a section of the former Waterford, Dungarvan & Lismore railway, established by the Duke of Devonshire.

Over a leisurely three and a half hours we’ll introduce you to that blackguard Oliver Cromwell, the late Ambrose Congreve, who turned his family’s estate into the world renowned Mount Congreve Gardens, and those Vikings, who never missed an opportunity to drop in unannounced, pocket your heirlooms and outstay their welcome.

You may even get a chance to pit your cycling prowess against the might of the Waterford and Suir Valley narrow gauge railway.
