One the Waterfront is an exciting new restaurant, bar and hotel located by the sea in Tramore, County Waterford. The seaside town of Tramore is well known in Ireland’s Ancient East and a popular holiday destination for Irish people.
The Waterfront first opened in the 60s as a popular bar. During the economic downturn the business, like many in the area, closed down. It changed hands a number of times including the popular Cúil Trá Bar and later a Chinese Restaurant called The Sea View.
The property remained vacant for a number of years before being purchased by local Kilkenny man Seamus Walsh in 2018. Seamus is well known in Ireland as being the owner of Waterford Castle, a luxury hotel and golf resort situated on an Island just 10 mins from Waterford City and 15 mins from Tramore.
Over a number of months in 2018 and 2019 Seamus and his team completely renovated and refurbished the property, including the addition of the Captain’s deck, perched on the cliffside and with breathtaking sea views. The main restaurant, One the Waterfront, opened its doors in June 2019.
While the restaurant opened, works quickly began on renovating the downstairs bar, which opened for business in December 2019. However, there is still further work to be done with more bars and lounges set to open upstairs in 2020.
The Beachlodge hotel rooms are currently in final stages of refurbishment and are set to open in March 2020.
