Tralee or Dingle?

Would B & Bs be more reasonable in Tralee or Dingle, or does it matter during the month of May?

Location depends on the points on your itinerary either side far more than the cost of accommodation. Dingle is totally tourist focused, Tralee is a working town.

Dingle is also a working town, Tony, and to call it "totally tourist focussed" is not accurate. It serves the peninsula -as I can attest from my visit over the weekend.

Dingle is a major fishing port, and the largest administrative centre in the Gaeltacht. There is a lot more to it than just tourism, although it does know to how to look after tourists. Typical biased nonsense from Tony2phones

Sorry for putting it in basic Terms...How about ..... Dingle is a place people go for their holidays, Tralee is a place where people go to work in commercial environments. Has nothing to do with Biased opinion it is descriptive information for the benefit of the questioner.
