Thus was a first visit to this hotel but not an overnight stay, the function I was attending was well staged and the buffet food was very good.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and there was a two piece jazz ensemble playing in the bar on a Sunday afternoon, very civilised.

No hesitation in recommending here and would re-visit.

Partner and I stayed here for a night while traveling and we're really impressed by the hotel. Hotel is very close to the town centre (less than 5 minute drive) and has a shop nearby. Staff were pleasant and knowledgeable. Room and ensuite were clean but not as up to date as we have seen in other 4 star hotels. The TV which was very old was a bit annoying in the fact that with it set at the lowest volume it was was still very loud and it might have annoyed other guests. The hotel itself is very well decorated and well finished. We had dinner in the bar which was called the Johnny Frank. It had a great atmosphere possibly because the final of PGA golf was on, but there did seem to be a lot of locals which is a good sign. Food was probably the best we have had on our trip and really could not be faulted, portion sizes were also very good. Breakfast the next morning had a small selection of self service breads and juices and we were then also offered a hot selection (Irish breakfast/pancakes) all of which was nice. We could easily have stayed a few more nights no problem and we would certainly consider staying again.

If you have a look at the picture I uploaded of the flower arrangement, this picture is symbolic of this property. It was fresh and beautiful at one time in the not too distant past. But it has withered and has lost it's wow factor. The one thing that was quite refreshing about The Meadowlands Hotel was the young lady who greeted us at their reception desk when we arrived in the evening. She was so welcoming and nice after a long day of traveling. The rest of our experience there was definitely not 4 star quality. The rooms are tired and in need of a refresh. The beds had a "pee guard" cover on the mattress and it prevents your body from breathing at night - so I woke up sweating.

Would definitely NOT stay here again - don't even get me started on the service by the wait staff in the bar for dinner. Worst service we've had in the whole of Ireland.

Room Tip: stay somewhere else!

Dear Charlie,
Thank-you for taking the time to write a review. We are happy to hear you received fantastic service on arrival from our receptionist but very concerned over your comments regarding our food and beverage department. As a family run hotel we do take complaints very serious and would greatly appreciate if you would contact us directly so we can hear more about the service you received in our bar. We hope to hear from you.
Kind Regards,

What a lovely hotel. Very clean, the room was beautiful and very quiet, the staff were excellent.
The town is about 10 minutes level walk.We would like to return on our own as our visit was part of a coach party which we felt had its problems. The breakfasts were served in the bar for three mornings and after complaints, by our courier, we were moved to the ballroom.The breakfast were a little disappointing, unlike other trips we have been on where more variety was offered.Dinner was served at different times in the dining room for three nights and the ballroom for the other two. We were seated on long tables rather like a canteen, when the drinks bill was presented it was for the entire table which resulted in some confusion. There was very little choice for vegetarians. Decaf coffee would be appreciated in the rooms.I do not like to be negative as we enjoyed our visit to Ireland. May I suggest that a little more attention is given to the comfort of coach parties.

Room Tip: Any room would be good

Dear Peter,
Thank-you for your lovely review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and Irish hospitality that you received. We do try to provide the same service for groups as we do our individual guests. After we received concern over group breakfasts in our bar we decided to accommodate your group for breakfast and dinner in ballroom. We have just promoted our new menu with additional vegetarian and healthy options. We usually have one vegetarian option available on our tour menu but we can accommodate further options on request. We do hope you'll return individually and try our new menu!

I am very happy to have found meadowlands hotel Tralee , this place is a real gem - just a little out of the main town but suited us down to the ground as we wanted to stay in the hotel itself .
From the moment we arrived on a sunny afternoon we could feel a lovely vibe from the hotel , lovely seating to the front if the hotel which made it ideal to sit in the sun and have a drink.
We proceeded to check in and met the receptionist Claire - she made us feel genuinely welcome and was so informative about the area and made her job seem
Effortless ! A great receptionist and first point of contact for the hotel .
We went to our room which was large in size and equipped with all amenities as you would need.
We went for drinks to the bar and yet again the bar staff and waitresses were on the ball, despite the bar being so busy they had everything under control and no delays , in particular Alan was very good , great at his job and great banter .
For our 2nd night we are in the restaurant and I had met one if the restaurant staff the previous night- I had mentioned , in passing , it was my husbands birthday and fair play to Aiden he remembered and they did up a lovely dessert with happy birthday on it with candles.
The night previous we had met the owner Peggy and told her of her lovely hotel and incredible staff , she was a lovely person too .
I have to say it's very rare to find staff that are so naturally nice , helpful and just happy and eager to please - well done to Peggy and her team - ye are a gem of a hotel and I can't wait to tell people about the fantastic hotel ye have , thanks to all for such a great break ! Don't hesitate just book it !!
