Atlantic Ballroom, Tramore, Co. Waterford

The Atlantic Dance Hall (Ballroom) in Tramore, Co Waterford is part of a by-gone era of the Irish seaside resort ballrooms.
Although we can't find a date for the opening of the ballroom, we know that in 1929 (see below), the ballroom was up for sale as the owner
was retiring. This situation would last for several years as it was still for sale in 1932. Over the years, the ballroom has
owned by a variety of people including Bill Fuller (RIP), the Piper family and others. During the 1950's and 60's the ballroom
played host to all the big bands of the era. Sadly in the 1970's places like Tramore were somewhat in decline as interest in Irish
seaside resorts waned as did the fortunes of the ballroom. Finally around 1978, the ballroom closed its doors to dancers
and was granted a license for amusements. Today, it is still standing and is an amusement centre,
