My wife and I recently went to Ireland and stay in a different spot every day for 5 days. On our 3rd day we stayed in Tralee at The Grand Hotel. We did not have any reservations and they welcomed us without any problems. The Grand has newly renovated rooms that are very appealing and modern, but most important the bed is comfortable and they gave us a room that was quite. They also recommended a very good restaurant that was moderately priced. Eileen Egan the manager chatted with us at night at the attached bar which is very nice. At the door I noticed a view awards that they had won. Just what you think of when you want to have a fine pint in Ireland, classy and warm with nice wood work and a few fireplaces. Also good company to tell your stories to. The best part about the Grand was the breakfast. The best one in Ireland easily and the best pace to stay in Tralee hands down.
