Clashmore (Clais Mhór as Gaeilge) is a village in the western part of County Waterford. The village and surrounding districts are low lying, as the name Clais Mhór implies, meaning the great hollow or trench...
Nestled between the Drum Hills and the River Blackwater the village of Clashmore is distinguished by it's brightly coloured houses and wealth of historical points of interest, such as the early 19th century Clashmore Distillery and the site of a 7th century abbey founded by St. Mocuha, on which now sits the striking Heritage Centre building.
It is located within an area renowned for it's fishing, watersports & golf clubs aswell as some breathtaking local walks. Because of it's close proximity, the area is indelibly associated with the River Blackwater (An Abha Mhór) which dictated much of the trade and fortunes of local people over the centuries.
We hope that this website can be a useful portal for anyone interested in visiting this serene and idyllic part of West Waterford which is part of the Gaeltacht Drive and is also located within Ireland's Ancient East.
There is an array of accommodation in the area for any prospective visitors ranging from cosy farmhouse B&B's to beautifully located self-catering cottages.
