More than a place – It’s a feeling.

Situated in the Comeragh Mountains in the picturesque village of Rathgormack. The community centre also encompasses a purpose built Fáilte Ireland approved hostel with beds for 22 people. 

 

The hostel and hiking centre are the ideal locations for exploring the many attractions of north Waterford, including Crotty’s Lake, Coumshingaun Lake, The Mahon Falls, and the Nire Valley in the Comeragh Mountains.

 

Unique flora and fauna is to be found in this very beautiful part of the county. The community always strives to ensure our actions will have a positive impact on our community, our people and our environment
