About our Location

The Art Hand is located at the heart of Waterford’s Copper Coast in an area of outstanding natural beauty with its spectacular cliffs and panoramic views of the Celtic Sea. This is an inspiring place for us to live. Visitors are enthralled by the peace and tranquility and the breathtaking landscapes. We have photographed Whales, Seals, Otters, Kestrels and Cormorants from our field along the cliff. We have also seen Foxes, Hares, Owls and Mink. The coastal flowers and spongy cliff grasses are beautiful. Moths, Butterflies and all kinds of strange insects pass through on the wind.

The spacious barren exposed landscape that surrounds us has a backdrop of the old Copper mines. Sunsets and sunrises are dramatic. 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, film-maker or nature lovers paradise. It truly is an inspirational place.The area is designated by UNESCO as a Global 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.
