Villages - Dunmore East Harbour

Home from the Sea...The Cruel Sea...
"...the wide-lying sea...the wonderful abyss...the ridge-backs of the flood...the wet-high, cold-venomed mountains of the truly deep ocean."

From "The Fate of the Children Of Turenn", an ancient Irish legend, one of The Three Sorrows of Story-Telling.

Monitoring page for 6 County Waterford beaches,
including Dunmore East and Tramore.
Tips - If you're uneasy about water quality, keep away from streams.
Also, do your swimming during the afternoons of hot sunny days.
The sun's UV rays can dramatically reduce coliform pollution levels.

3. Tramore, Dunhill and Annestown.

3 miles west of the Suir Estuary is Tramore Bay, one of Ireland's favourite holiday resorts.
It's got beautiful beaches, but be warned -
the town and main beach are packed in good summer weather,
and the Amusement Park thumps out noise non-stop.

A few miles further west is the picturesque village of Annestown,
and Dunhill Village, noted for it's nearby dolmen and castle,
is 3 miles upstream from the mouth of the Anne River.

"Keep off, keep off, good ship from me,
For I am the rock of misery".

Metalman, Tramore Bay,
with Brownstown pillars 3 miles away on far side of bay.

These pillars were built in 1823, in response to a terrible disaster in January 1816. 363 men, women and children were drowned when their transport ship, the "Seahorse", was driven ashore in Tramore Bay during a gale, probably mistaking the bay for the entrance to Waterford Harbour, three miles further east of Brownstown. By the time the crew realised their mistake, it was too late.

Backstrand and Sandhills, Tramore Bay.
Be careful on the backstrand - the tide comes in very quickly and can cut you off. Some parts are muddy and there may be quicksand. It's best to stay near high water mark.
