Dungarvan’s Reopening Journey

Dungarvan is firmly on the road to reopening! Thanks to the the commitment of people following expert advice, the innovation of businesses and the strength and support of our community we are slowly returning to a degree of normality. All our favourite local businesses are opening their doors again, taking care to prioritise the safety of their employees and customers who have been sorely missed. Here’s a look at what awaits.

Shop Waterford Support Local

New campaign launches

As retailers and business owners across Waterford City and County begin to prepare for the reopening of the City and Town Centres a new Shop Waterford Support Local campaign is being launched. The campaign, which is supported by business owners from Waterford City, Tramore and Dungarvan aims to encourage all Waterford people to support local in every purchase we make. The campaign wants the people of Waterford to support each other as when we act Together Waterford is Stronger.
