My wife and I visited the Grand on Saturday night. They have a formal restaurant but we wanted to watch the rugby so we are in the bar. We ordered two sirloin steaks meals and they were excellent. We visit the Grand on a regular basis and have never been disappointed with the food or the service.

The hotel is in the centre of Tralee be warned there is no free parking and there are traffic wardens about but if you ask the nice young lady on reception she has a free ticket for the church car park.

On my first visit to Ireland, my friends and I couldn't have stayed in a better place in Tralee. Dick Boyle and his staff took great care of us and made us feel like we were part of the family. The room was clean and comfortable, pub was filled with good cheer and the food in the restaurant was perfect... More
