Donerail Walk

Beautiful scenic walk looking out over tramore Bay. Suitable for all ages & mobility levels. It's 2 kms long so not very long. Go to coastguard cafe at end of the walk it's reasonably priced & you can sit outside in the lovely garden.

The Tramore Slí na Sláinte

A loop walk is an easy 1.5 hour (5 km) walking route along the stunningly beautiful Tramore coastline, county Waterford on Ireland's south coast.

The Tramore Slí starts on Church Road and follows the coastline along the Doneraile Walk. On your immediate left, you will see Tramore Strand, which stretches for almost 3 miles. In the distance, you will notice the sand dunes, which are some of the highest dunes in Ireland. You will also see Tramore Promenade and Amusement Park. An ancient canon gun lies on top of the cliff overlooking the entrance to the bay. On your right a Memorial Stone has been erected to commemorate the military victims of the Sea Horse Tragedy (1816) in Tramore Bay, when 363 people were drowned.

Near The Cove, a Haunted Well is located at the foot of the steps, so beware the spirits that are occasionally seen at midnight! Turning left towards Lady Elizabeth’s Cove you will notice the meandering ramps on the right. Proceed up the ramps, which will terminate at Cliff Road. The Cliff Road runs parallel to the cliff
face until it reaches the Guillameen, which formerly used to be a ‘male preserve’ but has since become a mixed bathing area. From the Guillameen you can see three 18mtrs high pillars. The Metal Man (1824), perched on the pillar center, warns mariners of the dangers of Tramore Bay. In the Glen, continue through the woodland until you reach the Cliff Road again.

Turn right at the next T-junction. On passing the golf club you will descend down Newtown Hill and back again onto Church Road where you will see the Anglican Christ Church (1850) on your left. The adjacent graveyard contains a Cenotaph to those who perished in the Sea Horse Tragedy. Source: Irish Heart Foundation

The Lark Park

Right at the back of Tramore beach overlooking Tramore bay. It's a bit of a bird sanctuary. Nicely maintained with shrubs and trees planted and beautifully arranged seating spaces to sit and enjoy. Even little sanctuaries for bees and bugs. Free parking and a disabled bay. Wheelchair users could access the park via an entrance from the main road adjacent to the car park. The walkway is stamped sand and usable for wheelchairs but not without a little extra push.
The covered viewing area for bird enthusiasts is a new addition to the park.
