The coming of the railways in the 1850s opened up coastal towns such as Bray, Bundoran, Salthill and Tramore as well as scenic locations including Killarney to tourism.  Visitors also enjoyed cycling and going by horse and cart to nearby beauty spots for picnics. These places initially attracted the aristocracy, middle classes and honeymooners. But from the 1950s, aided by the growing popularity of the family car, seaside resort towns started to cater for mass tourism represented by young people and working class families on summer holidays who wanted more than just walks along the seashores and jaunts up the mountains. Amusement parks with dodgems, ghost trains, mechanical rides and carousels; dancehalls with their American or British style music bands; and sandy beaches with sunbathing, donkey rides and swimming became big attractions. Family-run Bed and Breakfasts (B&Bs), guest houses and small hotels were popular accommodation venues. The heyday of the family caravan (homes on wheels) holiday was during the 1960s and 1970s.
