Name Tramore County Waterford Nearest Town Waterford City Access Road R675 About Tramore is just 13 kms south of Waterford City in the sunny south east of Ireland and is the most popular seaside resort in the county.


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.
