This is a hotel I want to shout about .... but, keep secret too. It's just too good to share!
A truly beautiful hotel with wonderful staff, great rooms (both bedrooms and public rooms), fantastic food and the most relaxing Spa.
I visit Tralee a few times a year and wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else.
The Ballygarry is just on the outskirts of Tralee (about a 5 minute drive away) so you do, preferably, need a car.
I've stayed there about 10 times in total and have always been delighted with just about everything. The only (ongoing) criticism I have is that their scrambled eggs (at breakfast) are pale, tasteless and hard. It won't stop me returning though!
In November I also went to an Irish wedding at The Ballygarry and everything, from beginning to end, was superb. The Irish sure know how to do things well ..... there were even fireworks at the wedding!
I love this hotel and would highly recommend it, so if you book to stay there, have a great time but please leave a room for me.
