This town is famous for an international competition popular in Irish communities around the world. The Rose of Tralee is held in August every year as a celebration of Irish culture.

The museum features a medieval experience hall, where visitors gain an insight into the lives of Tralee residents in the 15th century. Walk through a detailed life-size display. Costumes are available for children.

Learn about the workings of the traditional Blennerville Windmill. This magnificent structure is over 65 feet (20 meters) tall and open to the public to climb. Make a short drive from the center of Tralee to the windmill.
