Great food & great service :)

We were passing through Tralee one evening looking for somewhere to eat, but then we found Johnny Frank's. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we had a lovely meal. Nice atmosphere and the hotel looks nice from what I saw on their website.

We were at a wedding, everything was just as expected, beautiful location, food was to die for, and staff couldn't do enough for us. My favourite hotel to stay in, in Ireland!!!

Small menu selection but good food and beer! Very quaint pub co-located with Meadowlands Hotel. Pub has a lot of seating, free wifi and big screen TV with sports.

We had dinner here one night, while the food was excellent, there wasn't much choice on the adult menu, the chicken was cooked to perfection for us, and the desserts are not to be missed!

Wonderful, flavoursome and interesting food served by friendly and helpful staff. Lots of nooks and crannies which makes if feel very personal. Heated by wood burning stove. Very nice.

I ordered a dinner with glass of wine; I only ordered a house beef burger…I had to wait 35 minutes for it to be served on a plank of wood. (What has happened to good old plates; please burn those platters)Though tasty and homemade, for... More
