St Patricks Day in Tralee is the first chance for most of us to shake off the winter blues and embrace Spring.
It is also the first Bank Holiday since New Year’s Day, and is most welcome.
The St. Patricks Day Parade is the focal point of the festivities.
It starts in Moyderwell, coming down Castle St. passes the dignitaries, councellor’s etc on the viewing stand at the corner, and turns up Denny St. past ourselves, The Grand Hotel, and tails off at the Ashe Memorial Hall at the end of the street.
The parade seems to get bigger and better every year and is a great opportunity for all the differant aspects of Tralee life to celebrate and march for the town. It is a real community occasion.
From the Fire Brigade and the defence forces, to the dancing schools, clubs, societies, schools, everyone knows someone taking part in the parade.
As the parade tails away, it is time to follow another tradition handed down from our forefathers, and “Drown the Shamrock”.
Simply put- meet up with friends and go for a drink. Our bar is perfectly located and
is the best place to meet up with others after the parade. We have Traditional Music in the bar and The Pint of Guinness is the best in town. The Buzz and excitement in the bar is excellant and makes for a fun day.
This, St Patricks Day, in addition to the adult entertainment in the bar, we are hosting a childrens party in the ballroom, with a Green Theme. If you need to entertain your “little darlings”, follow THE SHAMROCK TRAIL, and enjoy music, bubbles, balloons, toys, games and juggling for the afternoon.
