Welcome to the homepage for St. Declan’s Way, a 104km ancient Pilgrim Route from Ardmore, Co. Waterford to Cashel, Co. Tipperary.
From north to south, the St. Declan’s Way route runs from the Rock of Cashel, Co. Tipperary, past Rosegreen and New Inn via back roads into Cahir. From Cahir it goes on small laneways and back roads through Ardfinnan and on to the tiny village of Goatenbridge. From Goatenbridge the ascent of the Knockmealdown Mountains begins and drops onto the small roads around Mount Melleray at the Wateford side before meandering in to Lismore. From Lismore the route heads along the Blackwater into Cappoquin and back toward the coast to Aglish. The route finishes via some wonderfully restored walking routes into Ardmore on the coast of Co. Waterford and past the Cliff House Hotel on to St. Declan’s Oratory and Tower.
