I stayed in The Grand Hotel, Tralee, from Sunday 02.09.12 to Satuarday 08.09.2012. The professional standards in The Grand are evident in the very warm welcome by all those on reception, by the chefs who really do cook up the breakfast as ordered, by the lunch and evening meal staff in the bar whose food was fresh and freshly cooked,...

We were delighted to read your very nice comments on Trip Advisor. It was very thoughtful of you to mention our Reception Staff, Chefs, Bar Staff etc. You quiet right in saying that we do seem to get a lot of American Golfers visit the Hotel.

I visted this hotel while staying in Tralee on business. What a delightful experience to be served perfect pints of guiness by obviously very experienced and mature professional barmen. Beautiful bar with an ambience and a comfortably busy atmosphere. Seeing so many people eating I decided to order from the bar menu the leg of lamb. Not expecting anything amazing... More

We stopped by on a Thursday for a one night stay. Finding this property in the center of Tralee wasn't difficult, finding a parking spot at eight in the evening was. It seemed as if everybody in town was patronizing the Grand Hotel. I was meeting my son there and he had already checked in. I was traveling with my... More

Bob, thank you for your kind words on Trip Advisor. The staff were especially delighted to hear your favourable comments on both service and food quality.

The Grand Hotel, is a long established family run hotel in Tralee Town Centre. It has an excellent reputation due to the careful management of the Boyle family. I regularly recommend it to business travellers and they have never been let down. The location in Tralee town centre is unequalled and while the hotel does not have the facilities available...

I recently stayed in the Grand hotel for 3 weeks. I was delivering a course in the hotel and staying there so I got an excellent overview of the hotel. Although I travel around the country delivering courses this is the first time that I felt compelled to review. The standard of service that I received in the hotel was... More

Thank you John for your wonderful review on Trip Advisor. We do cater for a lot of conferences and the Hotel is placing a lot of emphasis on this area, hence the provision of free parking. We passed your comments onto each member of staff and to say that they were delighted is an understatement. Hope to see you again... More

Just stayed four nights in The Grand Hotel, Tralee for the festival. This is a gem of a hotel, Eileen the Duty Manager really looks after guests requesting meals in the dining room.

Was at Grand Hotel on Monday 20th August for an evening meal with two others. Our starters were quite nice. For two of the party the main course was extremely disappointing, Ordered roast beef, well done, and when it arrived it was grey in colour, tasteless and tough. I reckon it was heated in the mircrowave and gravy poured over... More

We were disappointed to read on Tripadvisor that you had an unpleasant experience at this hotel during the Rose Festival. If the Duty Manager was made aware on the night that you did not enjoy your meal and if you had expressed your concerns to her there and then, she would not have charged you for your meal, more especially...

The Grand Hotel was a great stop in the center of Tralee. I was on a golfing vacation with my two sons and we came late on the Bank Holiday weekend. The hotel was nearly full, but Edel was able to squeeze us in for the night. This was fortunate, as all the other hotels in the area were fully... More
