Expect the unexpected on the Magic Road which forms part of the Mahon Falls Scenic Drive!This drive offers some sensational views of the Comeragh Mountains and the many high viewing points on the way provide excellent panoramas over the green countryside below. Possibly the most amazing few minutes of fun you'll have anywhere in the world can be found on this same section of road. Here you can experience a bit of Fairy magic!
So why is it called the magic road?
Well, here's where it gets really interesting, and we do believe that this will surprise you!
As you drive along, at a particular point in the road (which is well marked), stop the car and turn the engine off. Put the car into neutral gear and gently release the handbrakes, take your foot off the brake pedal and...abracadabra, hey presto - your car will roll UP the hill. How does it happen? It's a bit of special Waterford magic.
