"Tralee town is the largest town in County Kerry and is the County administrative, retail and services centre comprising an area of 1,237ha (3,057 acres). The town is served by a third level college the Institute of Technology Tralee in conjunction with the Kerry Technology Park which is the flagship location for knowledge-based enterprise in County Kerry. The population of Tralee at the last census is 20,288 and this accounts for 14.5% of the county population.
Tralee is nestled in a valley, created by the Slieve Mish mountain range to the south, the Stacks mountain range to the north, and Tralee Bay to the west. This very scenic and attractive landscape setting is further enhanced by a significant range of parks and open spaces, walkways and cycle routes developed over the years. The town is well served with indoor tourist facilities, including the award winning Kerry County Museum, the Blennerville Windmill and Steam Train, the Aquadome, cinema, restaurants and high quality hotels.
This web site deals primarily with the services provided by Tralee Town Council, but also provides a vehicle for the public to interact with the Council. It also highlights major events in the town and provides links to other Tralee web pages. We aim to expand and improve this web site over the coming months and welcome the input of the people of Tralee in achieving this." - Grace O'Donnell, Mayor of Tralee
