Things to do in the area
The River Blackwater draws dedicated game anglers to hunt wild salmon, sea trout and brown trout. Coarse anglers also find the river rewarding for roach, dace, rudd and tench. Cappoquin is one of the major angling centres for the river. The river is the third largest in Ireland, draining 5 mountain ranges, and is renowned for its enormous runs of salmon, 8063 being caught by rod and line in the 1998 season. Cappoquin accounted for 235 salmon and 280 sea trout. The heaviest fish in recent years for the Cappoquin water was a huge 26-pounder, taken and landed at the famous 'Kitchen Hole' by Jim Fitzgerald.
At Cappoquin the waters are tidal and fresh salmon and sea trout are constantly running. Fishing opens from the 1st of February to the 30th September each year.
Lake fishing is also available in the nearby Dromana Lake for those who prefer it.
Cappoquin Salmon and Trout Anglers' Association is one of the few clubs on the river and has 4 miles of double bank fishing (including 7 named pools) available to members and day ticket holders.
The Toby Jug offers use of its spacious dry-room to all residents for the storage of fishing tackle.
Tramore seaside resort
Those who love water should head for the major seaside resort of Tramore which boasts a 5km long sandy beach where there is surf coaching conducted by Tramore Surf Club and a 50-acre amusement park with a roller coaster, boating lake, crazy golf, waltzer, bumper cars, go-kart racing, ghost train, slippery slides, stalls and kiddies attractions.
West Waterford Golf & Country Club
Ireland's south east is fast becoming a haven for golfers of all nationalities. West Waterford Golf Course is a well designed championship course with beautifully manicured fairways and greens. The surrounding countryside provides a magnificent backdrop and breathtaking views. A dramatic backdrop is provided by the Comeragh and Knockmealdown Mountains to the north and east and the Drum Hills immediately to the south.
An interesting feature is that the first nine holes are laid out on a large plateau featuring a lovely stream which comes into play at the 3rd and 4th holes. The Brickey river traverses the southern boundary and features on the challenging 2nd, 12th, 14th, 15th and 16th holes
