Accommodation thread

Place for all future accommodation queries and recommendations.

Would be useful for anyone who wants to move throughout the coming year; anyone who transfers to Tralee in the coming months; anyone at all who in the future might move to Tralee ...


This thread could give them an indication of places and prices and amenities nearby.

/hopefully in time anyways


student accommodation map

propertycheck.ie is a good place to start.

I believe landlords need to go through the SU to be on there and there will be a facility for rogue landlords to be removed from the site if they unfairly retain deposits.

any student village recommendations for people though? propertycheck would be too vague for people especially first-years next year.

Hoping this thread could assist future moves in and around Tralee to also help people with their budgets, give students an idea of what to expect etc

I recommend avoiding student villages like the plague but that's just me.

They're a pain in the hole if you ever want peace and quiet to study, even during exam week. They're a lot less secure than a private house and my experience is they're harder to get deposits back from, even if you're a good tenant. They usually have very unreliable internet too and the landlord's don't care as much about fixing anything that gets broken.

Cois Cheim next to the North campus might be "okay" but it still has some of the above problems. The other student villages are not very near the college at all really.

I'm not moving to Tralee btw.

This thread is for the interest of current and future students.

What about accomm for those attending the south campus? Are people renting privately or in the student complex down there?

Are digs that popular? I remember being in digs in my first year in Tralee all those years ago

Digs are definitely out of fashion. I would say that on the south campus a lot of younger students are staying in one of the apartment complexes in the town, but there is a very large number of mature students in the South campus - due to the nature of the courses there - who obviously would prefer to rent rooms in private houses or are already living locally.

No reply to date in here. Have you heard anything yourself? If not, then a post in here would do you no harm

The ITT Student Union put up some info on facebook about a house available in early January.

I'm thinking of going to I.T. Tralee next year. Is there much student accomodation near the north campus?

The only student villages that I know near the North Campus are Kerry Lee and Coiscéim, but there are plenty of student houses in the area. The entirety of the Listowel road (Oakpark) is lined with housing estates so there should be no problem finding a room.

An Seán Mhuileann (Across from the bus/train station) and King's Court (Manor) are a little further away but they are served by buses that shuttle to and fro. I don't know the schedule for them but they must be every hour, 9 til 6 at least. I would not like to be walking from either of these complexes to college on a cold, wet and windy Monday morning.


MODS: I've made a google map that contains locations of student villages etc. Maybe you can stick in a link to it in the first post. I don't think it can be embedded. I can update it if anyone has any suggestions. We can add to it as we go along.

I've made the locations on the map exactly where places are on streetview not where they are named on the map (slight difference in location usually but it will save people having to click around). This is because people might find streetview useful to check out the place. Just drag the little street view guy onto the icon for the place you want to see and voila!
