A visit to the racecourse provides a glimpse of Irish culture. The racecourse is easily reached from Tramore.

I am not a racegoer but tramore races are always great fun and craic. Big event ladies day during the summer. Big crowd live music in the marquee drink flowing and everybody having a laugh. If visiting Waterford in August check it out. Recommended.
