Tralee is far away from everything if you are looking for a henparty with anonymity, then this is the place for you.
Smaller then Cork, Limerick and Waterford, but bigger then a large town. This gives a personal feel to Tralee, without the feeling of being lost.
Everything is central. For a henparty without taxis or cars, Tralee is a perfect spot.
If you are living in Munster Tralee is an excellent option for your hen as it is far away from home, but not at the other end of the country. Buses are frequent and the roads are good all the way.
There is good shopping in Tralee with several outlets including TK Maxx, and all the big brands. Being the capital of Kerry helps.
If an outdoorsy hen is your mission there are plenty of scenic places around Tralee to take a mini adventure, including Listowel, Ballybunion and Blennerville Windmill.
If you want to relive your days in the Gaeltacht when you were 14, then a trip to Siamsa Tire, Irelands National Folk Theatre is your only man, they have traditional irish music and irish language plays.
In terms of activities Tralee also has the usual suspects such as spa, paintballing, horse riding etc. There is also an excellent watersports facility if swimming is your gig.
Accomodation is plentiful in Tralee, from low cost, to high end, self catering and run of the mill. Availability is usually fine, save the week of the Rose of Tralee. This is one week not to be missed but it will be busy - accommodation and pubs will all be full.
Likewise restaurants. There are plenty to choose from, with Indian, Italian, Chinese and all the others.
The pubs in Tralee are notoriously great craic. There are pubs on every corner and a pub crawl is a lot of fun in Tralee including a few late bars nightclubs. There is an Institute of Technology in the town but make sure you use its proper title Institute of Technology Tralee and not Tralee Institute of Tralee - we're sure you can work that one out.
Tralee is hen friendly and there is a lot to be said for that !
