This town is famous for an international competition popular in Irish communities around the world. The Rose of Tralee is held in August every year as a celebration of Irish culture. It features street performances, markets, theater and fireworks. At the heart of the festival is a competition of influential young women competing to be crowned the Rose of Tralee.

Spend a day outside in Tralee Town Park in the town center. It features a garden of the senses, walking paths and a commemorative fountain. Find the spectacular rose garden, with one of the largest collections of roses in Ireland. Notice a statue honoring the first Rose of Tralee, Mary O’Connor, in the center of the park.

Tour the main gallery of the Kerry County Museum and see a bronze horn dating back to 3000 B.C. In the archaeology hall, learn how ancient relics are rediscovered using special tools. The museum features a medieval experience hall, where visitors gain an insight into the lives of Tralee residents in the 15th century. Walk through a detailed life-size display. Costumes are available for children.

Learn about the workings of the traditional Blennerville Windmill. This magnificent structure is over 65 feet (20 meters) tall and open to the public to climb. Make a short drive from the center of Tralee to the windmill.

Tralee is located in County Kerry in southwestern Ireland. This historic region is about 190 miles (300 kilometers) from Dublin and 70 miles (110 kilometers) from Cork. Stay in a hotel, cozy guesthouse or a self-catered apartment.
