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.
