Dunmore East Cliff Walk, the good refurbished footpath to Portally

The good refurbished footpath, but beware ...

... of the dangerous cliffs between Dunmore East and Portally.

Great views of the sea and cliffs form the footpath.

The little inlet seat and beach of Portally.

Along the coastal sandstone cliff path to Tramore, an excellent walk, though all the way is quite long, best to go from Dunmore East to Portally and Ballymacaw and return the same route.

The coastal path has many fine spectacular views of the River Suir estuary where it meets the see off Dunmore East.

 

The coastal path is potentially quite dangerous, so take care!

overlooking Portally beach.

 

Rambling along quite amicably you reach Portally.

 

Portally is a tiny inlet and quite secluded and untouched by the popular bustling Dunmore East beaches.

Then walking on you come to the inlet cove of Ballymacaw.

You can walk on along the coastal path further towards Tramore but the path became unclear, so after a bit we turned back and returned to Dunmore East.

The huge Tramore Strand (beach), excellent breakers when the wind is up a bit.

Theoretically you can walk all the way to Tramore, but? The huge and popular Tramore Strand (beach), excellent breakers when the wind is up a bit. On the distant right are the 'metal men' which are navigation points for fishing vessels entering Dunmore East or Tramore harbours.

Dunmore East, Co. Waterford

Ballymacaw, County Waterford, South-East Ireland: Ballymacaw is a quiet inlet on the coast between Dunmore East and Tramore. There are steps down to the rocks where fishing boats were once moored, but now very much of a backwater. However it is a good spot for a break in coastal walking between Dunmore East and the resort of Tramore. Up the road from the little beach and picnic spot is Dower's Bar pub and shop for an ice-cream or something stronger.
