4. Grab a pint (or two) at one of Tramore's great pubs


Recently renovated, The Ritz pub has become a favourite of locals and tourists alike. With its spacious, well-lit beer garden and traditional-Irish interior, the Ritz is the perfect spot to hang out and grab a pint of local craft beer or a tasty homemade burger during their summer barbecues.






5. Hang out at the beach


Last but not least, Tramore's most famous attraction is, of course, its magnificent beach. Whether it's a long hike to and from the sand dunes or a lazy afternoon spent eating ice-cream by the prom, there's something for everyone to enjoy.


Want to hang out somewhere a little more remote? Then why not visit one of the many rural beaches dotted along Waterford's scenic Copper Coast such as Kilfarassy or Bonmahon, both easily reachable by car from Tramore's town centre.
