The Lodge at Ballygarry House

This mid-18th century Lodge was formely the gate lodge of the O'Connor farmhouse visible to the north of the hotel. The main Dublin road was then moved which separted it from the farmhouse and joined it with Ballygarry House.

This farmhouse and Lodge was owned by the Slattery family but was the home of Thomas and Ellen O'Brien who were born and grew up in Tralee.

Their love story began when they refused to be separated because of religious differences despite the promise of family fortunes. They lived here raising 8 children together for 22 years until the 1940's.Ballygarry House has maintained the Lodge as part of Tralee's history.

The Lodge is now being used as a private event room with a personalised Butler Service for Afternoon Tea. Choose from our Prosecco, Gin or Vintage Afternoon Tea, perfect for a celebration or to spend an afternoon catching up with friends.
