Pubs and Restaurants
Tralee has 40 pubs so there is something to suit all tastes.
Amongst our favourites would be The Brogue Inn, which does excellent bar food along with a restaurant upstairs. They have live music most nights in the summer months.
Around the corner from that is Sean Ogs which is a dark and cosy traditional bar with live music every night and is always a big hit with the tourists and locals alike.
The Cearnog, or Square Bar, in the town square is a nice cosy bar with a heated outdoor area at the front which is ideal for dog lovers as you can bring the dog and drink outside.
The Grand Hotel on Denny St does excellent bar food. Expect big portions of typical Irish food.
Baileys Corner is a traditional pub with live music every night. The staff have a warm welcome for everyone and it’s as popular with the locals as it is with tourists.
Croi is one of the newer restaurants in town and its ethos is locally sourced & foraged organic ingredients. You are guaranteed a good meal here!
Spa Seafoods is a few kilometres outside of town but is well worth the journey for fish lovers. Ask for a sea view table when booking. You can watch the sun set over the Atlantic as you eat the freshly caught fish.
Bella Bia is a simple bit long established Italian Restaurant. You won’t go wrong here and it’s very convenient for a pre theatre meal as Siamsa Tire theatre is across the road.
Close by is Il Pomo Doro, another Italian and has been recommended to us for the large selection gluten free meals.
Yummy Café is a great place to bring the kids for lunch. They do an excellent kids menu and have a kiddies play area in the corner where the kids can play.
For a good coffee head to the Roast House on Denny Street. It’s a lovely café with beautiful décor and a great lunch menu. Our choice for a lunch in town!
We can’t forget our next door neighbours, the Rose Hotel. Dotts Bar in the hotel always has a warm welcome for our guests and the food is excellent. It’s just 300m from Reception so it’s the place to head to if you have arrived late and need a good meal. They have a swanky fine dining restaurant also if you are in the mood to treat yourself.
