The beautiful beach at Tramore stretches for 5 kilometres.
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, Tramore has a population of over 6,000 people.
Waterford Airport is located about 6km northeast of Tramore.
The town has long been associated with Irish tourists and offered a very traditional seaside experience of ice-cream, fairground and sand – a sort of a mini Irish version of Blackpool or Brighton.
There are lots of B& Bs, self-catering apartments, houses and mobile homes along with 2 and 3-star hotels.
There is an excellent Waterpark on the seafront.
The beach front features a long promenade and an amusement park.
It is a popular resort for tourists in the summer and has 5 km of beach and sand dunes looking out onto the Atlantic Ocean.
Tramore has a reputation for surfing, and the T-Bay Surf club which was established in 1967 has produced national and international surfing champions.
The Promenade, erected in 1914 serves as a popular walking route in Tramore and is the focus of the attractions of the strand during the summer.
The Cliff Road was built in 1872 as a carriageway on the site of an old Coastguard path and provides panoramic views of coastal scenery.
Tramore also has a superb championship golf course with stunning views of the sea.
The area within a 16 km radius of Tramore is an area rich in megalithic structures (eg. Ballindud Cromlech; Ballynageeragh Cromlech; Knockeen Dolmen; Gaulstown Dolmen), signifying habitation long before Christianity, although very little has been recorded about Tramore between St Deglans visit and recent times.
If it is a family holiday with young kids that you are seeking then Tramore is top of the list for the variety and inexpensive options it offers.
