Atlantic Geoparks Project

The Copper Coast UNESCO Global Geopark, as well as 13 other Atlantic Area European partners, has been successful in our application to the EU Interreg Atlantic Area Program for funding to develop and promote geo tourism within existing and aspiring Geoparks in Atlantic Europe.

This 30 month project will endeavour to forge new tourism links and products, within an Atlantic Geo tourism route, by promoting our shared interests and common heritage. The two other Irish Global Geoparks, The Burren Geopark in Co.Clare and Marble Arch Caves Geopark in Cavan/Fermanagh, will also be partners in this project along with partners from France, Spain, the UK and Portugal.

The Atlantic Geoparks project will look at promotional opportunities, networking and innovative IT projects which can be used to boost tourist numbers in a sustainable number across the project area.

Stay tuned to this page to find out more about our project activities and how you can get involved.

About Copper Coast Geopark

The Copper Coast Geopark is in Co. Waterford, Ireland and is an outdoor museum of geological records; it stretches along the coast from Kilfarassy Beach, near Fenor in the east to Ballyvoile Beach near Stradbally to the west. Volcanoes, oceans, deserts and ice sheets all combined to create the rocks which provide the physical foundation of the natural and cultural landscapes of the area. Follow the self-guided "Copper Coast" trail and walking cards available from the The Copper Coast Geopark Centre in Bunmahon.
