Mount Melleray Scout Activity and Sport Centre lies high in the Knockmealdown Mountains 7 km’s outside the town of Cappoquin, County Waterford (in Scouting Ireland’s Waterford Scout County). Originally a boarding school attached to the Abbey of Mount Melleray it was acquired by the Catholic Boy Scouts of Ireland in 1979 and opened as a Scout Centre.

Since then the Scout Centre has been continuously improved and now offers you the opportunity to run a very active and varied programme for “Scouts” of every age. With hills and mountains at our back door and a glen with river and forest nearby, it is an ideal Scouting location. It is an exciting activity base for all, from the smallest Beaver to the most experienced Venturer.
