The Gaeltacht of An Rinn, which can be seen across the bay on the greenway, is located about 10km from Dungarvan. The area has a rich heritage, including a famine walk, and is home to Colaiste na Rinne, where students flock in the summertime to Irish language courses.
The area is also home to two beaches, An Coinnigear and Baile na ngall. The former of the two can be seen from Dungarvan harbour, as a sand spit jutting into the sea. Harty’s oysters are farmed here, which are sold all around the world. The fishing pier of Helvick is also located here, where the renowned spa Solas na Mara can be visited.
