I have stayed in a number of Hostels over the years and can honestly say that Finnegan's is the most charming, quirky and friendly place to stay. Comfortable bed, ensuite, tea rooms, restaurant, all staffed by a team of lovely people who quite frankly couldn't do enough for us. They have responded to all our requests and bent over backwards to help us (especially when our car broke down!) If you want a boring run of the mill standard hostel then this isn't the place for you - if like me you like an eclectic mix of antique furniture, fresh flowers in teapots, old photo's and original features of a grand old house and plenty of character then I cannot recommend this place enough. EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY..by far the cheapest accommodation that we could find and perfectly located in the centre of town.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to Finnegan's Hostel, Restaurant and Mary Anne's Tea Rooms, Tralee, Co. Kerry. Built by the Denny family in 1826 from the stones of the old Tralee Town Castle. It was converted into a cute quaint hostel whilst making the most of its original features. We have a mixture of dorms and rooms with forty beds in total. All the private rooms are en-suite. We also have two big rooms with open fireplaces, perfect for those winter days! Our cellar restaurant serves fresh seafood and steak and offers great value for money. We are just five minutes walk from the train (Irish Rail) and bus (Bus Eireann) station and we are just off the Main Street of Tralee town so its perfect for visiting the sites, or heading out at night! Across the street from us is the amazing Tralee town park. We are only thirty minutes by car from Dingle, the Ring of Kerry and Killarney. The history of the famous Kerry landmark Mary Anne's Tea Rooms: Mary Anne Hickey and her husband Bartholomew came from a farm in Crinne outside Castleisland, Co. Kerry. She had ten children and fifty-four grandchildren of which I am one. She loved baking and entertaining friends & family at her home and these tearooms are dedicated to her memory.
