Exploring Waterford's Ancient Monuments

Half Way House

Half Way House

Located in a sloping field within a stone wall boundary, this stout, 'slab like' standing stone is clearly visible from the roadside and is adjacent to an empty whitewashed cottage along the road. It stands over 2 metres tall, facing south-west and has a blocky rectangular appearance. It is 1.25 metres at its widest.

A short drive from Waterford City, it’s just up the road from Jack Meade’s pub which is a quaint well known local establishment. The stone is usually kept company by farmyard animals such as ponies and goats.

 

Directions: From Waterford City take the R684 for Dunmore East. After about 5km where the road forks and is signposted for Passage East (with a garage in the centre), go left. At the next Y junction veer right and go under a bridge to enter the car park at Jack Meade’s pub. From here you can see the stone up on the hillside to your right.
