The 13 hectare site at Fenor Bog is one of the few community owned nature reserves in Ireland. It is a proposed Natural Heritage Area and is a wonderful location to enjoy a walk-particularly for nature lovers! There is a fantastic array of biodiversity in this very special location. As the boardwalk which allows access to part of the site is just 500 metres long it allows walkers to enjoy this location at a slow pace and enables visitors to get up close and personal with nature.

For families, no visit to Fenor would be complete without a trip to the simply wonderful Fenor Play Park just across the road-one of Waterford’s best playgrounds!
