County Waterford is a county in the province of Munster on the south coast of Ireland. It is the smallest county in Munster in terms of both area and population. Administratively, the city of Waterford is a county-level authority. Dungarvan is the administrative centre for the rest of the county.

County Waterford has two mountain ranges, the Knockmealdown Mountains and the Comeragh Mountains. The highest point in the county is Knockmealdown, at 794m. It also has many rivers, including Ireland's third longest river, the River Suir (184 km); and Ireland's fourth longest river, the Munster Blackwater (168km). There are over 30 beaches along Waterford's volcanic coast line. The county is one of the few in Ireland with a Gaeltacht, an area with native Irish speaking people.
