Tralee : Michelin's recommendations
County town of Kerry, Tralee is situated at the head of the bay, on the north of the Dingle Peninsula. As the town was largely destroyed during the 17C wars, its architecture is 18C. Over the last thirty years it has developed as the largest commercial centre of north Kerry. To the north-east the Vale of Tralee provides rich pasture for the black Kerry cattle.
