A bumper summer in Tramore!

The fantastic weather experienced throughout the summer had many from near and afar travelling to Tramore to the delight of local business owners.
This year’s spectacular weather has seen queues becoming commonplace for many shops, with parking spaces at a premium.
Dooly’s fish and chip shop has been associated with summer trips to Tramore for many years.
Owner Alan Dooley said the good weather during the past two summers significantly improved sales from figures in 2012.
“Dooly’s was also effected by the recession with sales falling but having weathered the storm things are looking up for us,” said Alan.
Alan Gillane, owner of various rides at the 50 acre Tramore Amusement and Leisure Park, said this year’s business was above expectations.
“The great weather of the past two years improved business greatly from a four year decline due to poor weather,” he said.
Tramore Tourism also expressed delight at enjoying a fantastic overall year.
“The positive summer contributed to Tramore being nominated as one of the best seaside resorts in Ireland,” a spokesperson said.
“Tramore Tourism has great plans for the future with the Japanese gardens planned for Tramore House and one of the biggest inclusive parks in Ireland at one and a half acres designed by HayesRyan Landscape architecture which also designed Tayto Park.”
The Promenade Festival also attracted crowds to the town this summer – and it’s hoped this festival can be further built upon next year.
“These features look set to make Tramore one of the best places to live in Ireland especially with the new secondary school Ardscoil Na Mara making Tramore one of the best locations for education in Ireland,” a spokesperson said.
