With Five Weeks To Go, Tralee Is Booked Out For Dubs Game

Posted by


Kerry and Dublin will renew acquaintances in March in Tralee.

WHATEVER about the Kerry v Mayo clash on Saturday, it seems a Dublin invasion is on the cards for St Patrick’s weekend.

With over five weeks to go to the match, there isn’t a hotel bed to be had in town on Saturday, March 18 and you’ll be hard pressed to find a B&B vacancy.

A search on booking.com for all accommodation in town reveals there is no bed in Tralee on the night of the match and all the hotels’ own websites booking services confirms this.

The combination of St Patrick’s festivities, the Tralee Marathon and the match is going to make for a massive weekend for the town, providing a great economic boost for pubs and restaurants.

There is reportedly massive interest in the game among Dublin supporters – who are also snapping up beds in Killarney – so expect a sellout and a ticket scramble for what should be the best atmosphere ever at a game in Tralee.

Meanwhile, the Mayo team won’t bring as many supporters, but Austin Stack Park is ready to welcome a huge crowd for Saturday night football to Tralee.

The match has a 7pm throw-in time but stiles will open at 5pm. Admission is €15 (usual concession for Students and OAPs applies, under 16s go free) and entry to the Stand will be on a first come first served basis.

Tickets have to be pre-purchased either in advance or from the ticket vans positioned outside the ground. They can also be purchased in advance (20% off the adult admission price up to 12 midnight on Friday night) at all the usual outlets including participating Supervalu and Centra Stores throughout the Country including all Garveys Supervalu Stores, at GAA.ie and at the Kerry GAA Store in the Outlet Centre Killarney and the Pavilion in Austin Stack Park Tralee. Tickets may be purchased on-line right up to match time.

Kerry County Council have offered Free Parking in the Car Park adjacent to The Rose Hotel, Dan Spring Road, which is walking distance of the venue. Patrons travelling to Austin Stack Park Tralee for the event are advised to arrive early as a large crowd is expected.
