Tralee Town

Founded in the 13th century by the Anglo Normans, the town takes its name from the River Lee which flows into Tralee Bay. Modern Tralee began to take shape in the 19th century with the structuring of streets like Day Place, Staughton’s Row, Princes Street and Denny Street in the early 1800s and the courthouse built in 1835.
