Where to stay in Tralee?

Hi

My husband, our one and a half year old and I, will be traveling to Shannon from Boston in August. Our plan is to stay on the west coast from 22/8-26/8 and take Day trips before we head over to Dublin from 26/8-29/8. We are trying to find a a cottage/apt with a COT, In a location to take day trips. We enjoy coastlines and parks. Any suggestions of a location to stay? Any suggestions for day trips?

Thanks for your input.

I would not stay in Tralee at all, I would opt for Killarney.

Your arrival date coincides with the end of the Rose of Tralee festival. Accommodation will be very difficult to find. http://www.roseoftralee.ie/ Banna Beach is four miles outside and there is a slim chance of availability. http://www.bannabeachhotel.net/accommodation/

Thanks for the info. This is kind of a last minute trip! Any ideas of other towns we should stay in on the west coast?

I would check out the Dingle Peninsula. Inch Beach is awesome and the small town of Dingle is also lovely !

Hmm... We've been through this once,. OP wants a base for day trips, one of which is the Cliffs of moher, so we discounted Dingle. I think Clare would be a better choice than Kerry. I always liked kilkee.

Not your fault, Mike, OP seems to have a scattergun approach to finding lodgings.
