We had such a lovely experience here! The location in the town centre makes it really easy to pop out to the local shops & restaurants even if it's drizzly outside. Although the cocktails & music in the joining bar are so good that we didn't feel like wandering too far!
Our room was beautifully decorated with a very comfy bed & big bathroom with a huge shower. There was also extra touches like the sleeping kits which made our stay feel extra luxurious.
Staff were so welcoming & helpful although my boyfriend struggled to understand the Kerry accents! Can't wait to come back!

Dear Laura, Thank you kindly for such a glowing review, I'm delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay and our cocktails. Our sleep kits are a James Hotel special, I'm glad you liked them and I hope you took our lovely pillow mist home with you! I can't offer any advice on understanding the accent however, maybe he needs to return to us for some more exposure to the accent... he might even pick it up! I hope we get to welcome you back to Tralee in the future. Kind regards, Eimear

We stayed one night in the James Hotel and it exceeded our expectation. The hotel and bar/lounge has been recently tastefully renovated so everyone is new and clean, bedrooms a fair size with a modern large bathroom. We had one drink in bar which had a nice vibe, cocktail was complimentary and very well made. The next morning we had a great table service breakfast with all staff and manager very friendly, I would really recommend it as a weekend stay.

Our recent stay at the James Hotel was truly enjoyable. Upon arrival, we received a warm welcome from the friendly staff, who made sure our experience was memorable. Situated in the heart of Tralee, the hotel's location is ideal for exploring the town's attractions. We appreciated the personal touch of it being a family-run business, which added to the charm of our stay.

The rooms exceeded our expectations with their modern comfort and tasteful design. And we can't forget to mention the cocktails – they were the perfect way to top off a fantastic evening.

The James Hotel is a beautifully finished family owned hotel right in the middle of the town of Tralee.
It is an oasis of calm and class.I found the staff extremely accommodating and obliging.
The room and ensuite were very spacious and beautifully finished to a very luxurious standard.
The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable.
I was very impressed and I can't wait to return. I would highly recommend this beautiful gem to anyone who wants to treat themselves to a slice of luxury right in the middle of the town.

A wonderful warm welcome on arrival in The James hotel. Our room was well air conditioned, had a very comfortable bed, a coffee machine and complimentary water. Lovely toiletries in the bathroom from The Handmade Soap Company and an excellent shower. The hotel is in Tralee centre with lots of restaurants nearby. From Wednesday to Sunday you can choose to have breakfast in the hotel and it is top class. The bar at night is very cozy and friendly.

The James is a new hotel in the centre of Tralee, built on the site of an old building in a modern style yet not out of place with the local architecture. It is immaculately finished to a high standard. Rooms are amazingly comfortable with high quality beds and bedding conducive with quality sleep. Stylish ground floor bar with a nice smart city vibe.

What a wonderful hotel! I really cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. I concur with everything that has been already said, high quality finishes, attention to detail, staff that go above and beyond and also that are happy and smiling and delighted to help their guests. Lovely bar area downstairs for breakfast and extensive menu. (Didn’t dine here though in evenings). Nothing seemed to be an issue at all. What a wonderful thing to hear Irish in the lift, have never heard this before! I had a huge problem with my dates due to family circumstances beyond my control. Eimear couldn’t have been more helpful with my bookings for 3 rooms and everything worked out perfectly thanks to her, even though it was a very busy time in Tralee. I have never encountered this amount of help in other hotels to be honest and I honestly cannot wait to return. Thank you The James Hotel.

Lovely and clean. Relaxing ambiance, with background music. Very friendly efficient staff. We all had the Cajun Chicken Burger which was hot, perfectly cooked - tender and the chips were as good. Reasonably priced at 18 Euros. Would highly recommend

This hotel is very centrally located in the heart of Tralee. The bedroom was very well appointed and quiet with some nice touches including a very comfortable bed. The hotel is very modern and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our only regret is we only stayed one night. We will be back again.
