1. Party time…

This weekend Tralee will be party central as businesses and groups hit the pubs, hotels and restaurants for their annual shindig.

Even if you’ve nothing organised, there should be great fun to be had, so get into the festive spirit(s) and hit the town.

2. Christmas carols…

The programme for this evening will feature a mixture of traditional carols along with some beautiful Irish airs. With special guests The O’Neill Sisters and some festive nibbles to start off the evening, there’s sure to be a little piece of Christmas to suit everyone’s taste. It starts at 8pm. Tickets €17/€15.
