The Copper Coast Geopark Centre, Bunmahon, Co Waterford.

When the Centre is open you are most welcome to come in to find information about the area and about walks and other activities.

In the Centre you can get something light to eat or drink. There is a small shop selling high quality local and Waterford food and craft products. And we have an exhibition all about the history of the area, much of it related to the copper-mining years around Bunmahon, but also about local artists and personalities and, of course about geology.
