Driving from Dublin to Tralee. How Long?

I've looked it up on google maps and it says it should take me 4hours to drive to Tralee from Dublin. I'd be leaving Dublin around 6 or 7pm so I shouldn't run into too much traffic. Is 4 hours still a good estimation?

Yeah, 4 hours is about right without traffic.
It usually takes me about 3.5 hours to get from Saggart to just outside Listowel and Tralee is about another 20 - 30 minutes from there.

it depends on where exactly in Dublin you going to. But at night it shouldnt be too bad. Tralee to Dun Laoghaire takes about 3 and a half hours at night.
Last month though i dd make it from Dublin airport to tralee in 3 hous flat.( i know there was no reason to tell ye that and i catually wasnt going like a boy racer.Its just once you geta mooth road which you will at night tbh )

Just looked at the AA Route Planner,Going from the IFSC to Tralee is a journey of 185 miles and should be done in 4 hours 12 min.That would be a Conservative estimate...

yeah 4 hours is about right
biggest hold up will be commuter traffic leaving dublin, so the later you leave the better

you might cut it to 3.5 hrs if lucky it is about 180 miles you might be hitting limerick around 9 so traffic will be heavy even with the ring road.

Takes me just over 3 hours at night with no traffic from kylemore rd to tralee. I would be driving quickly but not like a maniac.
