Tralee, on the northern side of the Dingle Peninsula, is the largest town in County Kerry, Ireland. It is located close to the base of the Slieve Mish Mountains in the south-west corner of the country.
Tralee is influenced by the Atlantic Gulf stream and therefore has a temperate climate with not much of a temperature variation across seasons.
Inhabited by Mesolithic hunters and fishermen once upon a time, gradually Celts and early Christians settled here. With a population of about 22,700 people, Tralee and its adjoining areas account for 25% of County Kerry’s population.
The town has a number of local and foreign industries and businesses located here. With some of Ireland’s popular heritage sites and leisure facilities, this county town is fast developing as the country’s newest tourist destination.
