After a long wet drive my family and I were genially greeted by Louise, who amiably showed us to our rooms and invited us to a welcoming tea. Our spacious, spotless rooms were well appointed with extremely comfortable beds, great showers, and large fluffy towels. The setting is charming and quiet. Breakfast was tasty and filling, and Louise is very...

Room peacefully decorated, clean, comfortable. Plenty of common areas to relax, including a beautiful solarium and lovely gardens. A delicious breakfast with plenty of choices started our day.

From the very welcome tea and cake on arrival to Louise booking tickets for a performance at the National Folk Theatre of Ireland, we couldn't have asked for more. Our room was comfortable, quiet and had everything we needed for a stay of three days.

We have just had a great stay at The Forge in Tralee where Louise made us feel so welcome. We particularly appreciated the pot of tea and biscuits she served us in the glass conservatory when we arrived. The bedrooms were most comfortable and quiet and the breakfast exceptional. We have no hesitation in recommending The Forge to other travellers.

From the moment I arrived I was made to feel very much at home. My room was lovely and quiet, allowing me two great nights of sleep. It had...

My wife, sister-in-law and brother-in-law stayed at The Forge for three nights at the end of May 2014. We spent two weeks in Scotland and Ireland and The Forge was then absolute best place that we stayed on the entire trip. Our en-suite room was large, clean, tastefully appointed. It is fully modernized and updated in every regard. The beds...

By far The Forge was the nicest place we stayed during our two week holiday. It is very conveniently located for day trips to The Ring of Kerry, The Dingle Peninsula, Killarney, etc. Our host, Louise, was exceptional in every way! She helped guide us to the best restaurants, shows, things to see and do. The room was very comfortable...

After calling at another B&B only to be told they were full, we were pointed in the direct of the Forge just up the road. Thank goodness for that, what a nice person Louise turned out to be.

“Every room is a winner. You cannot go wrong. The proprietor will serve any role you need, to include booking seats at the local theatre for you. This is a Five Star bed and breakfast!”

“All rooms are upstairs but from what we saw they were all good. There are festivals in Tralee and if you arrive without a booking during those times it will bw very difficult to get any room”
