As the capital town of Kerry, Tralee has a long and rich history. The town is over 800 years old and has played a central part in some of the most significant moments in Ireland’s past. There are numerous historical monuments scattered around Tralee and the surrounding townlands.
Today, the focal point of the town is the beautiful Town Park, 75 acres of green in the middle of bustling streets. The park is a monument to the Rose of Tralee festival, which has taken place annually in August since 1959.
Also in the region are the Ashe Memorial Hall, with its medieval experience, Siamsa Tire Theatre, Blennerville Windmill and St. Johns Church.
Active visitors can go cycling on one of the many mountain tracks, try the rock wall or paddle boats in the Tralee Bay Wetlands or go for a stroll along some of the best beaches the country has to offer.
