Garvan Cummins, The Greenway Man offers Bike Hire, and Walking/Cycling Historical Tours along the Waterford Greenway. Based at Durrow(Shanacool), The Greenway Man is based on the most spectacular part of the Greenway with tons of history from more turbulent times, a quarter of a mile tunnel, two massive viaduct, one having been blown up in the Civil War, the ruins of the old Railway Station, beautiful views of the sea, a new railway themed railway station, a quaint shop/pub and picnic benches and lots more.
While based here, The Greenway Man can also deliver bikes to hotels and bed and breakfasts or to where people want to start. "What I am finding is many people are driving to Durrow(Shanacool) and parking at the impressive new Greenway carpark and using it as a base and cycling west to beautiful Dungarvan, having a meal or drink there and returning to base where one finishes with a tea, coffee or drink at O'Mahony's Pub or one can go east Kilmacthomas and sample the treats in store there and return to base. "Durrow(Shanacool) is the most ideal place on the Waterford Greenway for families".
The Greenway Man is based on the R675 road which is the coastal road from Dungarvan to Tramore, 10kms east of Dungarvan. From the N25, take the Stradbally turn, 500 metres west of Lemybrien and I am only 3kms along that road.
