This is by far one of the best things that Waterford has to offer. The scenery is so FAB and it is well serviced with little cafe's and drinking holes. They are well spaced out, but if on a bike it's no issue.

Look up Kilmacthomas on the Airbnb site. Looks like there are a few options available in the village. Good luck and enjoy your trip.
