We got a brilliant geology and history tour of the geopark from Robbie and Bruce. They are extremely knowledgeable and engaging guides and our group thoroughly enjoyed our tour of to the geopark garden, Tankardstown mine, Trá na mBó and the geopark visitors centre. Highly recommend to anyone visiting the Copper Coast.

We visited the Visitor Centre during the week. The lady running the centre was very welcoming and full of information. We walked around the centre for about 20 minutes then had coffee and cakes and sat in the sun outside at one of the tables. It was a lovely stop for an hour or so.

I am a mining engineer, so I have to visit all these sites, as they always fascinate me. This Geopark is the smallest in the world, but still worth to visit, if you are close by. The history is interesting and the landscape outstanding.

We dropped into the Copper Coast Geopark visitor centre for a break and something to eat while travelling along the scenic southern coast of Ireland in County Waterford. The centre is located in a former church. which is well restored and equipped with a cosy café, an exhibition on the local Copper mine, complete with equipment memorabilia, archaeological archaeological ordnance survey maps and photos on the wall. This was a significant mining area during the 19th century, which has left an appreciable cultural heritage.

We had homemade vegetable soup and freshly prepared sandwiches on the benches outside, followed by coffee with apple pie - all quite tasty.

We enjoyed the spectacular scenery and autumn foliage as we drove along by the Copper Coast Geopark, extending from Stradbally in the west to Kilfarrasy in the east, a trip of about 10 miles. A quietly memorable experience.

Had a lovely coffee and piece of cake here: very mellow & relaxing with nice sofas. A great place to break up a day on the Copper Coast.
