The Copper Coast UNESCO Geopark – This is a panoramic route about 17 km long on the south coast of Ireland in County Waterford. The area is an open museum of geological records, and the name comes from the former mining industry, which is now a tourist attraction.

The area was formed for about 450 million years and was created by volcanoes, oceans, deserts and ice caps.

The whole idea was developed in 1997 by a group of local volunteers. In 2001, it was recognized as a European geopark, and in 2004 became the first UNESCO geopark in the world.

The  route starts in Stradbally and ends in Kilfarrasy, but I recommend extending it for another 7 kilometers and end it in the beautiful Tramore.
