TRALEE lies on the south west coast of Ireland, nestled in a valley gently sloping westwards to the sea, between the Slieve Mish and Stacks Mountains. It takes its name from the River Lee, in Irish Trá Lí (strand of the River Lee), which flows just south of the town into Tralee Bay.
It is the capital town of County Kerry, an area of spectacular beauty with sandy beaches, lakes, mountains, parks, historic sites and Tralee is at its heart. Tralee has all the facilities of a county capital. It is home to the world famous Rose of Tralee International Festival and Siamsa Tíre, the National Folk Theatre of Ireland, award winning Kerry County Museum among a range of indoor and outdoor attractions.
It boasts a range of superb visitor accommodation and easy access by air via Kerry Airport, and road, bus and rail links from the major Irish cities and ferry ports. Our friendly people invite you to join us to explore our history, culture and the natural beauty that have shaped us.
