We stayed at the Grand Hotel for 1 week and it was great. We had our son's rehearsal dinner there also. The food was wonderful. The staff was fantastic. They did everything they could to make this a memorable experience and it was.

The Grand Hotel Tralee is a nice place in the center of Tralee. The city is close to the Dingle peninsula and is a good starting point for visiting this region. The staff is welcoming and you may ask some help for your luggages without any problem (there is no lift). The room was very clear, clean and big. It... More

Nice family run feel to the hotel. A great central location in the heart of Tralee. We have stayed here on several occasions and have always been made feel welcome by the friendly management and stay. The food in both the bar and dining room is good Irish cooking and a good value.

Spent one night here in April and found most everything to my liking. Staff were excellent, food very good and the rooms quite nice. Had to ask for a room that was not over the adjoining roof and venting system but was very kindly moved.

Our group of 33 persons was welcomed with genuine warmth and given a fine lunch in opulent surroundings. Service was first class and we were pleasantly surprised to find that one of the waitresses spoke French - as most of us were French! All very happy.

We recently visited Tralee on business and stayed at the Grand Hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the food was second to none. We were on what was referred to as BBD!

Just returned from a fantastic vacation in Ireland with my wife, daughter and future son-in-law where our trip was made extra special with a stay at The Grand Hotel. The hotel overall and our room was exceptionally clean and impeccably appointed. The breakfast was terrific and quite plentiful and the location was outstanding - right in the center of town....

We have just spent a whole week at the Grand, and have nothing but praise. We had a room up the back stairs, on the 3rd floor. Big comfortable room, with an enormous bed. We all loved breakfast, and I would strongly recommend the breakfast scones which are probably the best I've ever had. Served warm, crusty on the outside... More
