Banna Strand, Tralee

4.9
Enjoy relaxation and recreation at Banna Strand, a long, sandy beach hugging Tralee Bay. Sand dunes run along the entire length of the beach, and there are plenty of activities to enjoy. Try your skills at kite surfing, paragliding, and boogie boarding, or if you prefer a more low-key approach, get out the fishing pole. The current from the Atlantic is not too strong and children can swim safely with supervision from on-site lifeguards. For a bit of history, look for the memorial honoring several men who attempted to land arms for Irish Republicans from a German vessel. To plan Tralee vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Where to stay in Tralee

Tralee offers accommodations in both its historical neighborhood, which boasts 18th-century architecture, and its more contemporary quarters. To experience Tralee's traditional charm, stay along Denny Street, located in the oldest part of town. Here plenty of hotels and hostels cater to different types of travelers. If you prefer more modern lodging, head south of the Mall. The town can be navigated completely on foot, so wherever you stay, you will be able to take in the sights. Like many destinations on the western coast, Tralee also offers a few spa options for more luxurious getaways.
