Twenty Four Hours in Family Friendly Dungarvan

Eunice Power is owner and chef extraordinaire at the chic takeaway And Chips in Dungarvan, Co. Waterford. It’s no surprise they were awarded the title of Waterford’s Best Takeaway 2022, because they are no ordinary takeaway! They cook locally caught sustainable fish, they have alternatives for vegetarians, beautiful packaging and they have additional options for kids, including their 100% Irish Beef Burger in a Blaa with Homemade Chips!


We could go on and on about other write ups they’ve received, visits from Neven Maguire and recognition from McKenna’s Guides, but we won’t! Just be sure to include them on your Wish List when you visit Dungarvan !

And with a visit to Dungarvan in mind, we asked Eunice to share her Top Tips for 24 Hours in Dungarvan – we asked her to keep it concise, top quality and full of punch – like any great takeaway! And that’s exactly what she did …..



Dún Artisan Bakery, Main Street Dungarvan @dunbakery

Think morning pastries, sourdough and coffee! Also award winning and included in McKennas Guides for 2023.



Cass & Co. Main Street Dugarvan @casscodungarvan

A Gourmet Food Shop providing Coffee, Deli and a superb range of food and drink options to purchase for home or staycation option. And you guessed it – also award winning!



Interlude, Quay Side Dungarvan @interludedungarvan

You know it’s a great option for lunch when they pride themselves on using local produers, quality ingredients, homemade and they have a Kids Menu! Quay Side location is also a winner!


And Chips, Davitt’s Quay Dungarvan @andchips_

A trip to the seaside isn’t complete without a Fish and Chips dinner, and when it’s multi award winning, it’s even better! And as it’s not your average chipper / takeaway, think Falafel, Korean Chicken Wings, Chowder and so much more!



Clonea Beach, Dungarvan

Clonea Beach is a Blue Flag sandy beach located outside of Dungarvan. It’s a beautiful clean beach, and is considered safe for swimmers of all abilities.



Skateboard Park, Dungarvan

The newly opened Skateboard Park is an amazing free facility, located beside the playground. It is suited to skateboarders, rollerbladers, BMXers and scooter riders of all ages, skills and styles. 



Ardmore Open Farm and Mini Zoo, Ardmore @ardmoreminizoo

Less than twenty minutes from Dungarvan is the ever-popular Ardmore Open Farm and Mini Zoo. With animals, play facilities and a cafe, it’s not surprising it was a Travellers’ Choice recipient in 2022!


Wink and Elbow, Dungarvan @winkandelbow

A Gift and Homewares Shop known for it’s Contemporary Designs for adults and children alike. They’ve been named in the Top 75 Independent Irish Shops and in the Top 15 Independent Interiors Shops!



The Park Hotel and Leisure Centre, Dungarvan @parkhoteldungarvan

Hotel and Self-Catering options make this a wonderful choice for families looking to stay in Dungarvan. Located a five minute walk to the Town Centre, with a Leisure Centre and close proximity to the Waterford Greenway.



If you happen to manage some kid free time, the Hot Seawater and Seaweed Baths @solasnamara are an incredible experience, as named on National Geographic, Lonely Planet and TG4 to name just a few! And if the time allows, Merry’s Gastro Pub @merrysdungarvan is your place for a drink, a chat and maybe some Live Musics !


A huge thank you to Eunice @andchips_ for sharing those wonderful recommendations for 24 Hours in Dungarvan! Try and tell us you’re not tempted to pay a visit after that!
