On entry to the Brandon Hotel reception area, you imagine that the entrance has somehow been missed; it's an empty space. Then a bar that looks inviting is seen to the left and on looking around the reception has somehow slipped in behind you to the right.

We usually stay here when visiting relatives in Tralee. It has a safe car park. Rooms are comfortable quite big with table and chairs, bath and shower. Great breakfast and very good bar which serves tasty meals. Very friendly staff. Never look for anywhere else to stay when we go over.

We had a fabulous mid day dinner here, and returned with a larger group the next day also. On both occasions the service was superb and the food amazing, great choices and each better then the next. The kids choice was graet too, and it made a pleasant surprise to find kids dinners came with vegtables!
