KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Tralee

  • Renting cheap car rentals in Tralee can offer several advantages over alternative transport options. Having a car rental in Tralee allows you to explore the city and its surroundings on your own terms. In addition, Tralee is located in an area with many scenic and remote areas that can be difficult to access without a car. Using Tralee car rentals means that you can explore the Ring of Kerry, one of the most picturesque driving routes in Ireland, or visit more remote destinations like the Dingle Peninsula, Killarney National Park, and The Burren.
  • Milltown (Kerry) Kerry Airport (KIR) is approximately 13 miles from Tralee. The rental car offices at KIR are located in the arrivals hall of the airport terminal. Shannon Airport (SNN) is approximately 66 miles from Tralee. The rental car offices at SNN are located in the Arrivals Hall of the airport terminal building, just after baggage reclaim. Cork Airport (ORK) is approximately 69 miles from Tralee. The car rental offices at ORK are located in the Car Rental Village, which is just a few minutes' walking distance from the main terminal building. To access the Car Rental Village from the terminal, follow the signs for car rentals and exit the main terminal building through the doors marked "car rental". Once outside, turn left and follow the covered walkway to the Car Rental Village.
  • Driving in Tralee can be a unique experience, especially if you are visiting from another country. Irish drivers tend to be fairly relaxed and respectful of traffic rules and other drivers. However, like anywhere else, there are always a few drivers who can be impatient or aggressive. In addition, bicycles are a common mode of transport in Tralee and Ireland in general so you should be aware of bike lanes and be prepared to share the road with them. Additionally, be aware of pedestrians when driving cheap car rentals in Tralee, particularly in busy areas like town centers.
  • Tralee is a compact town with limited traffic congestion, so driving is typically manageable throughout most of the day. However, peak rush hour traffic can occur during weekday mornings between 8 am to 10 am and evenings between 4 pm to 6 pm when people commute to and from work. During these times, the N69 road that leads to Tralee from the north side can get congested. In addition, the winter is usually from December to February and can bring colder temperatures and occasional snow and ice, which may make driving cheap car rentals in Tralee more challenging, especially in rural areas around Tralee.
