Mooncoin is a village situated in the far south of Kilkenny, just 7 miles from Waterford City on the main Waterford to Limerick road. Mooncoin is a quaint village which has continually received high scores in the Tidy Towns competition. Mooncoin is said to have obtained its name from a man by the name of Coin Walsh. The Irish translation of Mooncoin is 'Móin Coin', which means 'the bog of Coin' or 'Coins bog'.
