Tramore started in 1971 with the purchase of our first Irish Setter.  Our main concentration has been showing and breeding, but many of our dogs have gone on to successful obedience careers, therapy, agility, and recently field work.

Our mountain location, 30 miles west of Denver, provides our dogs with clean, fresh air, and natural excercise.  The kennel is an extension of the house, so the dogs have "couch" time, and are family members.  For this reason we try to keep our numbers small and frequently have young or finished dogs available to "special" homes.

Averaging a litter per year, we breed for sound temperaments, correct conformation, and healthy specimens.  We exhibit primarily in the Rocky Mountain West, but attend our National Specialty and other large shows.  We've produced over 80 AKC Champions, several Japanese, Mexican and International Champions, and have ROM's on several of our bitches.

We belong and subscribe to the principles of the Irish Setter Clubs of Colorado and America, and have served in many officer capacities with the former, and been on the Board of Directors of both.
