Image of The Art Hand, Waterford The Art Hand:
The Art Hand is located on the southern coast of Ireland in County Waterford at the heart of an area called the Copper Coast. It is located at the heart of Waterford’s Copper Coast between Bunmahon and Annestown in an area of outstanding natural beauty with its spectacular cliffs and panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean.

The area is designated by UNESCO as a geopark; a place of great geological significance. In the 18th century the area had a booming copper mining industry the remnants of which can be seen close by at the old Tankardstown Engine House. It’s quite a dramatic landmark with its austere buildings and towering brick chimney. The Art Hand is the closest building to these old ruins.

Be inspired by the unique local landscapes and wildlife. We have photographed Whales, Seals, Otters, kestrels and Cormorants from our field along the cliff. There’s a pathway around the edge with five or six viewing areas along the cliff. Please be cautious. We have also seen Foxes, Hares, field mice, an owl and a mink. There’s even a couple of wild deer living in the fields behind us, although we haven’t seen them yet. The coastal flowers are breathtaking. Moths, Butterflies and all kinds of strange insects pass through on the wind.

The spacious barren exposed landscape has a backdrop of the old Copper mines with dramatic sunsets. Enjoy the space and tranquillity of this stunning location on the Copper Coast in County Waterford. One of Ireland’s hidden treasures. Sit on the cliff top and watch the weather roll in from the south-west.

Storms here are exhilarating and the fog is spooky. The weather can change in a matter of minutes and the sky and light is always dramatic. A photographer or nature lovers paradise.
