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).
