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).
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.
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.
