Armagh folk travelling to Kerry - Where to stay?

(Oldest Posts First)

Hello,
Thinking of coming down for the league match in February. Was wondering if any of you could recommend somewhere good to stay.
Maybe 6 or 7 of us coming down and would be interested in somewhere near a good bar or football club that might have a bit of a session on or a sing song and a few wee pints..
Thanks.

Plenty of places in Tralee but maybe one of the boys from that neck of the woods can be of more help?

Hiya,

match is on Saturday 11th Feb, It's a night game under lights at 7:00

In Tralee if it's hotels you looking for: Abbeygate, Grand, Imperial & Benners are all in the town itself about 10 minutes walk from the field, The field is above near the bus/train station. On the outskirts of the town a wee bit is Fels Point, thats about 15/20 minutes walk, Tralee is not as big as people make out.

There are several pubs etc that do B&B also like the Abbey and Sean Ógs. It's a great place for a gaa weekend being honest and sure your sterling is laughing at the moment so wont; be the most expensive weekend either.

If you want more details on the places above just ask... and enjoy the weekend

VM if there is a group of lads heading down looking for somewhere cheap then there is a great little hostel in the middle of town near to everything. Castle Hostel.

thanks very much all for your help. Just booked into the abbeygate there, pretty good only 30euro each.
Looking forward to a good weekend. Plan to get down good and early on the saturday about early afternoon,
settle in for a few quiet ones in a wee local bar, go watch the game, then watch the rugby and finish off with another
couple of quiet ones and a few verses of the boys from the county armagh....
take er handy and thanks again, vm.

p.s if anyone wants to recommend a good old traditional afternoon bar in tralee with good stout give me a shout......

The pub I go to in Tralee is the one on the corner of the little 'square' that has the black canopy and the gas space heaters outside it!!.....Best spot in town for 'decent people'!!!

I wheel around then to my ginger haired buddy in Sean Ógs then for the lock in!

Yep!

I gotta say, it is the only pub I like in Tralee to be honest.....where the people are of the decent type that you could talk to! I dont like 'slobberers' in pubs if you get what Im saying!
Sean Ogs is too touristy early on until you knock it up for the lock in afterwards.

VM I would suggest the Sportsman Inn on the way out to the ground which i am sure you will enjoy pre match.
