Tramore, Co. Waterford

Tramore (Irish: Trá Mhór, meaning big strand (or beach)) is a seaside town in County Waterford. A small fishing village until the arrival of the railway in 1853, the town has continually expanded since. Initially as a tourist destination and latterly as a seaside suburb of Waterford City, which is 13 km (8 miles) to the North. Waterford Airport is located about 6 km (3.5 miles) northeast.

The area within a ten mile radius of Tramore is an area rich in megalithic structures (eg. Ballindud Cromlech; Ballynageeragh Cromlech; Knockeen Dolmen; Gaulstown Dolmen).

Beaches
Soak up the sun, stroll along the 5km stretch of golden sandy beach, take a plunge in the rolling ocean waves or simply relax and take in the breathtaking views of Tramore’s beautiful beach.

Fun Park
Enjoy all the fun of the fair in Tramore’s 50-acre Amusement Park. All the bustling atmosphere of the carnival, spectacular rides, arcades, boating lake and octopus island. Fun for all the family.

Golf
Choose from a selection of top class golf courses in the area including Tramore, Waterford Castle & Faithlegg to name but a few.

Free access to beaches, moorland, valleys, mountain and riverside tracks allows the rider and trekker to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Waterford from horseback. There are four stables within easy reach of Tramore including it’s own Laketour Riding Stables.

Waterford City
Enjoy the city life only 12 kms from Tramore. Take in some shopping in the Waterford Design Centre and many interesting shops in Waterford City. Visit Waterford Treasures at the Granary, which traces the history of Waterford from its Viking foundations to the 19th Century. It celebrates the cultural diversity of Ireland’s oldest city. A must is the Waterford Crystal Visitor Centre. This gives visitors the opportunity to follow the history of this beautiful cut glass, see the glass being made, admire the product and purchase some fine crystal ware.

Heritage
Museums vary from the spectacular, sophisticated interpretative centres to local, voluntary manager establishments where the emphasis is on local artefacts and traditions. Reginald’s Tower, Waterford Heritage Museum, Lismore Heritage Town and Waterford Heritage Services are just some of the treats in store. There is so much to Tramore, nestled in Waterford, the Crystal County of Ireland.
