Tralee Barracks aka Ballymullen Barracks was built local militia units between 1810 and 1815.

  • In 1873 the barracks became the depot for the 101st Regiment of Foot (Royal Bengal Fusiliers) and 104th Regiment of Foot (Bengal Fusiliers).
  • In 1881, these regiments amalgamated to form the Royal Munster Fusiliers here.
  • The Royal Munster Fusiliers were disbanded in 1922. 

Following Irish independence, the barracks were taken over by the forces of the Free State in August 1922. A newly refurbished headquarters block was opened at the barracks in April 2002.
