Tralee, Co. Kerry
Tralee (Irish: Trá Lí) is the county town of County Kerry, translated the Irish name means 'strand of the Lee' (river), although some believe it comes from the Irish 'Trá Liath' meaning 'grey strand'.
Well-situated at the point where the River Lee flows into Tralee Bay, Tralee is the gateway to the rugged Dingle Peninsula. Although perhaps most famous for the Percy French song The Rose of Tralee - an association celebrated each August at the international Rose of Tralee Festival - this busy commercial centre has much else to offer in and around the town, including Siamsa Tire (the National Folk Theatre of Ireland), horse racing, great beaches and, at nearby Blennerville, an impressive restored windmill.
Tralee offers a variety of attractions with leisure and Irish culture and heritage along with the Aqua Dome leisure centre and swimming pool and the Jamie Knox Wind Surfing School. Some of the best golf courses in Kerry are but a short drive from Tralee including Ballybunion and Tralee Golf Courses. Other local activities would include horse riding, hill walking and historical sites.
