National Council in January 2013 will take place at IT Tralee Students’ Union on 26 January 2013.

The President at IT Tralee SU has provided a very comprehensive set of information on the town and arrangements for the weekend.

Message from the President of IT Tralee SU begins:

I have attached a list of all hotels in town and the rates, though I would recommend a few places though depending on your own preferences:

[show_hide title=”Accommodation”]

  • The Manor West(it’s the first hotel on the left as you enter Tralee, and it has a nice gym with pool, sauna etc.)
  • The Carton (not too close to the campus but a nice hotel, with gym)
  • The Meadow Lands (Closet to the North Campus)
  • The Grand (It’s in town so only a few steps away from the mighty Kerry Guinness)
  • The Imperial (as above ^^)
  • Tralee Central (as above ^^)
