 Waterford Airport

Small in size but big in personality, Waterford Airport has been serving the South East of Ireland since 1981. Waterford Airport specialises in short-haul flights from Ireland to England, so you’re likely to bump into a lot of business people making use of the free wifi within the terminal.

As well as as well flying to four English destinations (Manchester, Birmingham, London Luton and London Southend),Waterford Airport also offers indirect flights to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dusseldorf and Paris Charles De Gaulle; all excellent choices for a weekend break. The airport is currently undergoing expansion and new routes (such as Amsterdam) will soon be operating.

Waterford Airport has recently expanded its commercial offerings in recent years, but in the past has always been involved in general aviation too. Private flights, leisure flights, and pilot training make up a big part of air traffic at Waterford. The Irish Coastguard has two search and rescue helicopters based in Waterford Airport and often uses it as a training base for new pilots.

South East of Ireland

If you’re planning on visiting the beautiful South East of Ireland, Waterford Airport is the best place to fly into. Waterford Airport not only serves the city of Waterford but also the regions of Wexford, South Tipperary, Kilkenny, and Carlow.

The rugged scenery of South East Ireland lends itself well to outdoor activities such as horse riding, rambling, water sports and angling; plenty to keep the avid adventurer happy. Who can resist the charm of a cycling holiday in Lismore?

There’s lots going on for bookworms, too, with some of Ireland’s most beautiful castles located in the area. History buffs should be sure to include a visit to Enniscorthy Castle, which has stood since the 1230s and borne witness to some of the most interesting events in Irish history.
