(Oldest Posts First)

Flying over from the UK to watch my first live games. Coming over the Kerry v Galway match in Tralee and the following day I'm off to watch Donegal at Meath.

I am staying in Killarney on Thursday & Friday and having been therefore before I know how good the town is for pubs, bars & restaurants.

I'm driving up to Tralee on Saturday and onto Navan on Sunday. So, can anybody recommend any decent pub, bars and restaurants in these towns. Live music is a must.

Thanks in advance.

I have no idea about Navan or Tralee but Meath and Kerry posters are plentiful on here and can surely help? This place is gone a bit weird that even the posters request gets 2 red thumbs. Enjoy the trip anyway Martin, you have a bit of driving ahead of you but should get 2 good games.

Castle Bar on Rock Street in Tralee is a decent spot Martin, usually has a good crowd after the game
Owners usually record the match and replay it after too

Navan should be a bit of craic that Sunday Martin.

Ryans Bar on the main street is a big pub always buzzing for pre match pints as it is the last stop on your way to Pairc Tailteann.
Its always busy immediately after games too, with a lot of people stopping in for a pint or two.
P.Clarkes is another good pub in Navan that attracts a big match day crowd. Its at the bottom of ludlow st and is a hub of GAA chat.

If its live music youre after then either the Royal Meath pub on the square or Birminghams bar on Ludlow st are your best bets that sunday evening. Lovely little traditional pubs but maybe not the biggest spots for GAA talk.

Anyways plenty of good ale houses in navan and all are within 5 minutes of eachother. And more importantly less than 5 minutes from The Palace Niteclub.

Dont drive in the morning if you have a feed of pints the night before. Irish Guards regularly have check points where they test for drink driving especially on weekends.

Don't drive in the morning if you have a feed of pints the night before because you're a danger to yourself and others. Never mind if the Guards are checking or not.

No such hotel in Navan Royaler.
You must mean the knightsbrook in Trim. The poor lad will end up at a hurling match if you send him out there.

Maybe that wouldn't be bad thing.
