Copper Coast Geo Sites

The Copper Coast UNESCO Global Geopar is based around  many different locations called “geosites” along the mid Waterford Coast and inland. Geosites either tell a part of the Geological story or combine the human with the geological to make combined heritage.  Our Geosites tell the story of the different environments that created the bedrock of the Copper Coast, the Copper which formed within the rocks here and the story of peoples interaction with the landscape.

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.

Please respect our Geology and Nature; leave them with us, take just memories away.
