'Tralee by the Sea' is the gateway to the Wild Atlantic Way! Following on from the successful launch of the new ‘Tralee by the Sea’ brochure earlier this year, this week saw the launch of the new ‘Tralee by the Sea’ video which showcases a local family enjoying all the top attractions, activities and adventures in the beautiful Tralee Bay area.
Tralee has magnificent scenery, rugged mountains, stunning beaches, diverse indoor and outdoor activities, excellent retail outlets, wonderful hotels, accommodation and restaurants along with great night entertainment…something for everyone to enjoy!
Mags O’Sullivan Centre Manager at the Aqua Dome said ‘the aim of this video is to showcase Tralee as one of the top tourist destinations along the Wild Atlantic Way’. Mags continued to say ‘once people see this video they will be inspired to visit Tralee and experience all the wonderful hospitality, activities and adventure this coastal town has to offer’.
