Ireland is known for its beautiful natural features — from the iconic Cliffs of Moher that tower over the Atlantic to the sights along the 120-mile Ring of Kerry outside Killarney, which highlights some of the most spectacular scenery in the southwest.

To encourage travel to the southeastern region of the country, which is also home to some fabulous inland and coastal landscapes, the Irish government recently opened the Waterford Greenway, a public park stretching 30 miles from Waterford — Ireland’s oldest city, located just two hours from Dublin — to Dungarvan, a town along the southern coast.

The Waterford Greenway, which runs along an old railway line, will be open to runners, cyclers, rollerbladers and anyone else in need of a peaceful stroll through the Irish wilderness — you can even bring along your dog (as long its kept on a leash and you clean up after it). The path passes through a stunning mix of mountains, hills and lush greenery as well as several historic sites, before bringing you out along the coast. Check out the video below for a closer look.
