The Grand Hotel Tralee
Ranked #8 of 14 Hotels in Tralee
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 July 2014

I stayed here again with my mother and father for the first time in ten years and it is still as warm and welcoming as ever. The staff are extremely helpful, going out of their way to assist us with any enquiries that we had, and they are just generally nice people. The room was more spacious than the last time which was good and the location is brilliant; right in the heart of Tralee. The only negative thing about the hotel is there's no elevator, which can be very difficult for people with walking difficulties or problems as some rooms are located up quite a lot of stairs. I will definitely be staying here again in the future!

Just back home in Sweden after a five night stay at the Grand Hotel in Tralee and once again left there with a wonderful experince. Attention to detail, friendliness and versatility are just three of the words I would use to describe the staff there across all the departments at the hotel. It was my third time staying there with guests from Sweden and it just seems to get better and better. Old World charm and centrally located with a great restaurant, great bar, lovely rooms. We look forward to returning to the Grand in the future!

The Grand Hotel in Tralee in County Kerry is indeed worthy of its name. i have been bringing small tour groups of Australians to Ireland for the past eight years and was looking for a new hotel for our four day stay in Tralee. I believe I have chosen the perfect place to stay. the hotel has several things going for it.
Firstly it has an ideal location right in the heart of town, on the edge of the shopping centre and just three to five minutes walk from the Town Park with its beautiful Rose Garden, the superb museum [not to be missed] and Siamsa Tire [the National Folk Theatre of Ireland].
Secondly the building itself is one of great character that is tastefully furnished, with many interesting items of historical interest. Thirdly the quality of meals is really excellent,whether you are eating in the elegant restaurant or the friendly bar. Finally, the staff are both really professional and most attentive to the needs of hotel guests.
During our stay a member of the group was hospitalized with a serious health issue, the support and concern received from the hotel staff was quite outstanding.

We were passing through and stopped for a quick dinner and were very pleasantly surprised. The food was so tasty and flavourful and even though it was late in the evening all the ingredients were so fresh. Highly recommend the chicken wings especially!

The only negative things to mention here are the parkingfacilities, and the wiev from the room. Everything else was very fine. We had excellent food in the pub which very crowded, but thanks to waiter Danielle and Richard behind the bar, we had a very pleasent stay here. Thanks again.
