Good spot for pet lovers

    Hi,

    just wondering is there any particularly good spots in the city recommended to live if you have dogs/cats?

    Might seem like a stupid question I know but I mean, access to good walking routes with minimal traffic/people, dog friendly green areas or close to suburb/country roads non student/scumbag areas etc. All without being in the poshest places!

    hoping to narrow down daft searches a bit!
    thanks.

    The Tramore Road river walk, and across the road is the Eco-Park at Kilbarry.

    There are only two residential areas to live in Waterford.

    1. Normal: loaded with students, anti-social behaviour, thieves, junkies. Prices: expensive.
    2. Posh: loaded with nice green areas, small traffic, nice pet walks, friendly neighbours. Prices: ridiculously expensive

    That seems a bit harsh. I'm sure there are very nice places to live amongst the "normal" working class folk. I'm looking to buy by the way (not rent) so just don't want to purchase a house and have my pets terrified by non stop student parties or a back garden where items get thrown over the wall to murder my pets. Exaggerating!

    Lived up the back of collins avenue for a while. We have a cat and I was never worried about him as it was quiet and far from the Dunmore road. Same could be said for the back of Earls court

    Maybe it would be easier if you gave the area(s) where you are planning to buy the house and you could get advice on that area.

    What about Ferrybank?
    Respectable enough area with country roads near enough? Any dodgy areas?

    You could look at gracedieu, some of the estates up mear Bilberry are very close to the entrance to the greenway.
    The likes of Cherrymount/Avondale or even Ursuline court would have easy access to the eco park.
    There is a lovely river walk out on the Dunmore road. It runs behind King's Channel and Maypark area, but they are expensive areas.

    I guess it depends on the type of pet and type of walking.

    If you have a car, you can head to any of the beaches around, or head out to the likes of Faithlegg which has loads of foreset/mountain trails.
