Stayed here on a work trip a few weeks ago. Since I have been back to Ireland to Cork, Shannon and Dublin and not one of the other hotels come close to this one. At each hotel we used the function room for training to about 60 plus people each day. At the meadowland the attention to detail was fantastic and the staff here did everything to make sure the day ran smooth. The room I stayed in was very large and very clean the on-suite with Whirl pool bath separate shower and two sinks was a nice to have to unwind after a long day. The hotel has a restaurant and a bar area with it own menu. I choose to just eat in the bar both nights. One night had the steak which was so nice I had to put it as my Facebook status as it was the best steak I have ever had. The seconded night I had the seafood platter as I was told the owner of the hotel was also a fisherman. This was very clear when you tasted the quality and freshness of the fish. Nice people, amazing food great hotel. Would with out a doubt stay here with the family. P,s thanks for the loafs of soda bread the wife loved it as much as I did.

Walking down the hallway of the Meadowlands hotel I found myself feeling a wonderful sense of peace and calm. Ahead of me was a glowing fire that said "Welcome!" in it's warmth. On the hall table the beautiful aroma of fresh flowers lifted my spirits and the smiles and genuine warmth of the staff made me feel that I was truly welcome here!
I have been using the Meadowlands Conference facilities and meeting rooms for over a year now and every experience has always been first class! My work matters to me so it is vital that the spirit, professionalism and ambience of any facility I use reflect my own ethos for providing a top notch service. Thank you to all the wonderful staff and to the owners Peggy and Paddy for everything you have done to make me feel so welcome! I highly recommend the Meadowlands! It's simply MAGICAL! Thank you for making business such a pleasure!

The Meadowlands Hotel is a really nice hotel. We were a party of six including a toddler, and we had a really good stay. The rooms are a lovely size and very clean. The food and service in the bar were excellent and the staff were very obliging and friendly. Would be happy to stay here again if I visit Tralee in the future.

I was booked into this hotel by j murphy and sons, me and two other colleagues were presenting conferences during the day ... we were looked after like kings !.. we could not want for anything at all.. the hospitality of this this hotel is second to none ,
the rooms are beautiful and this is not even the best bit !....you must go here and eat !!! OMG!! I had the steak here , this steak was the best steak I have ever eaten full stop, it melts in the mouth sooooo tender...(drools) the food portions were so good once I'd finished my meal I was like a balloon , again the staff are second to none, they could not be more polite and helpful , and the second day was the same I ate like a true champion , so much flavour in the food ....the last day we asked if we could have a loaf of their home made soda bread to take home :)... they were delighted to bake us some , and right now I have a few slices here in front of me whilst I type this up here ,home back in the UK Kent. I enjoyed my experience so much that my wife and I and the kids are 100% going to have a long weekend here.
Before I go I just want to say thank you to all the hotel staff at Meadowlands you guys made us feel at home and I will be back ,
thanks
