  • A century of history. Nice place. Lot of thing to learn
  • All based on 11th to 15th Century Tralee
  • So much fun to view the exhibits here. The mannequins are entertaining and you get to learn something as well.

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.
