The Rovers Return, Tralee

lTHERE WAS no sign of any of the Corrie gang, but there was a fair few Jack Duckworths seated at the counter. This is definitely the 'Old Man's' pub of Tralee and our Old Commando found it very relaxing.

The elderly barman certainly knew his stuff and although he took his time pouring pints, we wouldn't dare question his knowledge or experience. At €4 a pint, we didn't complain about the price, although our glass was a bit sticky.

Most of the elderly male clientele were glued to the horse racing on TV and the jukebox in the corner was switched off just in case anyone dared use it. There is also a pool table available. The pine tables and chairs looked relatively new.

The toilets were okay, but there was a slight odour and the soap dispenser was empty. Some of the wall tiles are cracked, but the electric dryer was working. Not quite as lively as it s namesake in Manchester, but the locals seemed very content.
