Tramore (population 6,536) is a popular seaside resort town about 12 kilometres south of Waterford City.

For a town whose main attraction is its 5 kilometre-long beach, it is unfortunate that it has not been able to secure Blue Flag status for the beach in recent years. Whether it will have it in 2001 is not known at time of writing.

As well as an amusement park, Tramore has the Splashworld outsize swimming pool, which features a wave machine, among other things.

There is a pitch and putt course, driving range, and golf club.

Beach angling and surfing are popular activities here.
Surfboards and wet-suits can be hired from Tramore Surf Club. (051) 386022.
There is also daily coaching on the beach during the summer.

There is horse racing at Graun Hill in January, March, and August.
The Holiday Racing Festival, August 12-15, consists of music in the town and racing at the track.

The 8-kilometre Doneraile Walk, which is signposted from the Tourist Office, provides scenic views of Tramore Bay.

Another walk, following the strand to the Burrow at the end of the beach, offers opportunities to spot some wildfowl.

Transport
There are six Bus Éireann Expressway buses to Dublin each day. Local buses run from Waterford to Tramore every half-hour.

Waterford Airport is just south of the Waterford City, and there are regular flights to the U.K.
