Eight Things To Do Around Tralee This Weekend

Posted by


Rejoice! It’s Friday. Dancing, beautifying, hurling and Mother’s Day are among the things to see, do and celebrate over the weekend, in and around Tralee…


1. Get Exposéd…

Exposé Beauty Lounge is the place to be on Friday night.

The salon at Mounthawk is opening a new upstairs treatment room with former Rose of Tralee, Maria Walsh doing the honours.

Guests on the night can avail of a range of offers including 20% off products on the night,  discounted treatments, demonstrations and more.

There will be goodie bags for the first 100 people, a finger food, prosecco on arrival and there’ll be a raffle for a fantastic hamper on the night. For more details call Expose Beauty Lounge on 066-7189009.

2. Meet the Churchill dancers…

Excitement is building for the Churchill GAA Strictly Come Dancing event late next month.

The dancers have been rehearsing mad in the past number of weeks and they will be introduced to the public at a special launch night tonight at the Oyster Tavern at 9pm.



3. On yer bike…

The Fenit Coastal Cycle takes place at 10am in aid of St. Brendan’s National School, Fenit.

This is the 5th year of the successful competition with two main routes of 60km and 25km. They also have a 10km & 1km route for younger cyclists.

This year the nominated charity to receive a donation is The Cork Kerry Link Service. Registration Cost is €25 and you can register between 8am and 9.45am on the morning of the cycle.

Around 1,100 people will pack the Brandon Conference Centre for the what is sure to be a sensational night of entertainment.

After months of preparation, the Kerins O’Rahillys GAA ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ event is here and from 8pm, the 12 couples will be competing for the inaugural crown.

There is still a few tickets available from Charlies Bar in the Kerins O’Rahillys Clubhouse and Moran’s Shop on Strand Road.



5. Take the mammy out…

It’s Mother’s day so I hope you all have the Sunday lunches booked. The Meadowlands Hotel has a Three Course Lunch for €25.00 per person with complimentary chocolates for every mother (pre-booking required).

The Grand Hotel’s award winning chef, Gorka Arrieta has created a delicious four course Mother’s Day Lunch Menu at €30.00 per person with each mum receiving a complimentary glass of bailey’s.

Kirby’s Brogue Inn  always serves a super Sunday lunch and mothers can always expect something special on the menu.

Meanwhile, if you are getting out of bed after attending the Strand Road Strictly event, then Charlies Bar at Kerins O’Rahillys Clubhouse will be the place to be for Sunday lunch. There’s sure to be a great atmosphere, especially since the seniors are playing their county league game at 3pm outside and Tom and Eileen have specials on the menu for the day that’s in it.


6. Showdown at Austin Stack Park…

The Kerry senior hurlers will play Offaly in their remaining Allianz Hurling League fixture at 3pm. A victory will guarantee Division 1B hurling again next year, so they’ll need all the support they can get.

Admission on the day costs €15 but it is available at a reduced price of €12 if purchased online on www.gaa.ie , from the Kerry GAA offices in Austin Stack Park, from the Kerry GAA Store in the Outlook Centre in Killarney or at participating Centra or Supervalu stores around the county up to midnight on Saturday. Under 16’s are free.

7. Derby Day…

If full-blooded football matches sound more appetising, then a trip to the John Mitchels GAA grounds at Ballyseedy will sate you.

Austin Stacks travel there for the first Division 1 County League Tralee derby of the season. It’s bound to be an intriguing contest with a 2pm throw-in.


8. RNLI Recruitment…

Fenit RNLI  is holding a recruitment day between 2.30pm-4.30pm. They are currently seeking volunteer crew members for both lifeboat and shore duties.

The event is targeted at those who feel that they could contribute to any activities associated with the RNLI including lifeboat crew or helping with shore duties such as assisting with events, fundraising or any role that plays a part in helping to save lives at sea.
