The apartment we rented was located above MJ’s beauty salon and had a great view of the ocean and an old church. Everything in this town was within walking distance, so despite having a rental car, we really only used it to visit Lismore or Waterford.

Dungarvan has a nice shopping center, several grocery stores and plenty of great restaurants. They also have a movie theater that is nice and incredibly affordable. Like all of the towns we have visited, the people of Dungarvan are incredibly warm and friendly.

Things For Kids To Do In Dungarvan

Dungarvan has two really nice playgrounds. The first playground we visited was quite large and had an awesome zip line. Our kids played on this zip line for hours over several days and decreed it there favorite playground in Ireland.

The local movie theater offers classic animated movies during the week that kids love to watch along with inexpensive snack options that include popcorn, a drink and candy.

Restaurants in Dungarvan

The Indian Ocean Restaurant in Dungarvan became one of our favorites. We visited several times during our stay. They offered traditional indian dishes with a ton of great flavor. The staff was helpful and made great food recommendations. We also ate at several pubs and enjoyed a few additional restaurants. We were never disappointed. Soups and bread anywhere that we have stayed have been a welcome treat in an attempt to warm up.

The Anchor Bar offered good pub food with several big screen tv’s to enjoy the Rugby World Cup games on. Ireland made it to the quarter finals while we were staying here so the vibe around the city was electric. Irish fans are passionate about their Rugby!

Final Thoughts

Dungarvan was what I consider a perfect Irish city. It is big enough to offer restaurants, playgrounds, shopping centers and a movie theater. But, it is small enough to walk around on a daily basis and explore while coming across incredibly outgoing and friendly people. Dungarvan is also located close to other smaller and larger towns.

Dungarvan, Ireland is a beautiful coastal town. We stayed here for our last week in Ireland and really enjoyed it. This was by far the largest town we had stayed in long term and the flat we rented couldn’t have been in a better location. Located just off of Mitchell street, you simply walked thirty feet and when you turned the corner you were facing the center of town.
