Copper Coast Geopark Visitor Centre, Bonmahon.

The Copper Coast Geopark Visitor Centre is closed until March 2020

If you have a group who would like to visit or an idea for an event please ‘phone (051) 292828 or email

Located in a restored 19th century church, the Geopark Visitor Centre contains a local mining and environmental heritage exhibition, walking trail guides and leaflets as well as a high quality cafe.

The Cafe serves locally made soups, sandwiches and sweet bites as well as Copper Coast Roast coffee and there is also a local craft shop selling high quality Copper Coast and Waterford food and craft products.

The visitor centre exhibition costs only 3 euro to enter and tells the story of the history of the area, much of it related to the copper-mining years around Bunmahon, but also about local artists and personalities and, of course, about geology.
The Centre will re-open during March 2020.

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.
