Reviewed 20 June 2014

Nice family run feel to the hotel. A great central location in the heart of Tralee. We have stayed here on several occasions and have always been made feel welcome by the friendly management and stay. The food in both the bar and dining room is good Irish cooking and a good value.

We dined on 'The Early Bird ' Menu. The reception staff were welcoming the choice of food was great ,can really recommend the duo of black and white pudding as a starter and the tiger prawns in korma sauce as a main. All the food was well cooked and beautifully presented,and the staff were all most attentive. Would recommend as excellent value for money at 25 euros/head for three courses plus coffee or tea.

Spent one night here in April and found most everything to my liking. Staff were excellent, food very good and the rooms quite nice. Had to ask for a room that was not over the adjoining roof and venting system but was very kindly moved.

Our group of 33 persons was welcomed with genuine warmth and given a fine lunch in opulent surroundings. Service was first class and we were pleasantly surprised to find that one of the waitresses spoke French - as most of us were French!
All very happy.

We recently visited Tralee on business and stayed at the Grand Hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the food was second to none. We were on what was referred to as BBD! Bed, Breakfast and Dinner and we dined out of the early bird menu which was very good. Breakfast was an absolute feast, with fresh fruit on the buffet along with a selection of fresh cereals, yogurt and the most tasty brown scones I have ever had the pleasure to sample. I can honestly say that I look forward to my next stay at the Grand Hotel in Tralee.

Room Tip: We had a small, but quiet room up the back stairs, but it was on the 3rd floor which was a bit of a...

Just returned from a fantastic vacation in Ireland with my wife, daughter and future son-in-law where our trip was made extra special with a stay at The Grand Hotel. The hotel overall and our room was exceptionally clean and impeccably appointed. The breakfast was terrific and quite plentiful and the location was outstanding - right in the center of town. Dick and his staff were extremely friendly, very professional and so attentive to our needs.
If you want a great place to stay that’s modern, clean and offers excellent value with an outstanding staff than look no further than The Grand Hotel in beautiful Tralee.

We have just spent a whole week at the Grand, and have nothing but praise. We had a room up the back stairs, on the 3rd floor. Big comfortable room, with an enormous bed.
We all loved breakfast, and I would strongly recommend the breakfast scones which are probably the best I've ever had. Served warm, crusty on the outside and totally light inside. The bacon is good too! We also had several main meals at the hotel, both in the bar & in the restaurant. The standard, presentation, quality & above all taste, matches any restaurant I've ever been to. Fairly priced too. I would challenge anyone not to be satisfied by the home made steak burger, and the seafood pasta was amazing. Desserts are never disappointing either.
Bar drinks prices are low for a hotel, competing with bar prices in town.
But what really makes this hotel special is the ever smiling and helpful staff, they just make you so welcome. And it's not just the usual "Irish" welcome, as some of the staff are from other parts of Europe but still behave the same way.
I've reviewed this hotel once before, when we stayed for a couple of nights and loved it, but having stayed for a week I think it's even better!

Room Tip: be ready to climb some stairs! Eat in the restaurant if the bar is busy, it's the same price and...
