Recently they has been a lot of things happining in the town centre with paving the square to a very high standard i can’t get photos anywhere?
there was a article on the property section showing a large retail development that ws eye catching and fits in well with archtectureod the surroundings.
its one of irelands largets provincial towns and has it fair share of architecture.

There’s one very beautiful Georgian (I think) street in Tralee but I’m not sure of the name of it; it’s just off the main street, The Mall. Most of the rest of Tralee doesn’t do much for me but it’s certainly looking a bit better than it was ten years ago. Tralee had a lot more character when it was a major market town for farmers. With the decline of agriculture, Tralee lost much of its traditional economic support but it seems to be bouncing back a bit in the last couple of years.

Are you thinking of Denny Street? Can’t think what else it might be.
There are also some nice Edwardian houses on the outskirts and a smattering of Victorian three-bay two-storey ones, but generally it wouldn’t excite me as a town. Sorry Tralee. 😮

i was reading some info about the coolest towns in ireland and galway and tralee were highest on the list ? quite starkling
Tralee appeals to me because it really has a buzzing town centre and nice avenues and parks and well laid out i think .
its really expanding a lot now though.
the square in the town was recently paved for a heft price and design .
i like ashe road and the museam too.

The project arose from a competition winning submission by EML and a development company in 2003. The site is in Tralee and is bounded to the south and east by Tralee’s town parks and elsewhere by shops and a cinema.
The accommodation consists of two storeys of underground parking with retail / commercial space overhead at ground and first floors. Seventy apartments are provided at third fourth and fifth floor levels, arranged around an elevated landscaped courtyard.
i came across this,what do you think ?
