Founded by owner Garry O'Donnell, Garry and staff have been keeping the people of the Kerry fed, watered, informed and most importantly entertained for over 30 years. Baily's Corner offers their customers quality food, service and atmosphere in Tralee town centre. Whether you're looking for tea, a scone and lively conversation in the morning or a made to order sandwich and fresh soup for lunch the bar caters to suit both your taste and your wallet. If it's after dark entertainment you're after look no further. Baily's have live music seven nights a week.

Renowned for its extensive whiskey selection, Baily's has over ninety different whiskeys from around the world, the largest selection of single malt whiskeys in Kerry.
