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.
