Dungarvan is a harbour town located at the heart of County Waterford. It is an ideal base for any tourist wishing to tour or holiday in Ireland's 'Sunny South East'.

The town is beautifully situated on Dungarvan Bay and is the starting point for three contrasting scenic drives, the Gaeltacht & Galltacht Drive, Dungarvan & Copper Coast Drive and the Comeragh Mountains & Nire Valley Drive.

The town owes its foundations to the Anglo-Normans in the 12th century, but was substantially reconstructed by the Duke of Devonshire in the 19th century. There is a published Town Walking Trail which encompasses the many fascinating points of interest in Dungarvan. Among these is King John's Castle .It was one of the few royal castles built in Ireland. This castle has been restored and is managed by Dúchas The Heritage Service, who provide guided tours, an audio-visual show and exhibitions during the summer months.

Dungarvan is a golfer’s paradise. There are 3 first class golf courses on its doorstep. Dungarvan Golf Club's Championship Parkland course is located 4km east of the town and is set against the backdrop of the Comeragh Mountains. This attractive and excellently maintained Championship Parkland course has been architecturally designed to challenge all levels of golfer.

4km west of Dungarvan is the West Waterford Golf & Country Club. This golf club is built on 150 acres of rolling parkland on the banks of the Brickey river with the backdrop of the Comeragh Mountains to the east, the Knockmealdowns to the north and Drum Hills to the south. West Waterford Golf Club holds the prestigious Championship Course "Blue Flag Status" Award.

At Ballinacourty 4km south east of Dungarvan is the Gold Coast Golf Club. This championship parkland course has unrivaled views of Dungarvan Bay, the Irish Sea and Helvick Head. Mature tree-lined fairways laid out in 1939 are cleverly mingled with the long and challenging newer holes.

Dungarvan , once a major angling destination over 20 years ago, is now undergoing a revival in this sport because of the good fishing grounds and new investment in Charter Boats. Typical catches include Conger, Ling, Pollack, Cod, Pouting and Coalfish. On the Reefs off Mine Head, up to 22 varieties have been caught in one day. Dungarvan is also one of Ireland's Blue Shark Angling Centres. They usually start to get plentiful around mid-June and stay until mid-October.

The Dungarvan Show is held annually in July. It is one of the longest running shows in the Southeast. The show always features Horse, Pony, Cattle and Sheep Showing classes, as well as Show Jumping for Horses and Ponies, with lots of other attractions for the young and not so young.

Féile na nDéise is a traditional Irish music and culture event held every year in Dungarvan on the May Bank Holiday weekend. A number of events are held over the weekend, including dancing, street performances, music sessions and lectures. The festival attracts performers and musical groups from all over Ireland and Europe.
