Youth activities

by saktime

Hi,we will be in Killarney in mid October and I'm having a bit of trouble locating activities for the 12-15 year old set. Any ideas?

How active are they??? An all day hike through the Gap of Dunloe, or do it on horseback, boating on Loch Leanne with picnics (over 100 islands to explore)
Take the hike up above Torc Waterfall to the lake.

Buy a bohran and learn to play it.

Rent bikes and bike down to Ross Castle for the tour and then bike through the park along the lake.

The museum in TraLee might be interesting to them as well as the antique car collection (for rainy days)

Muckross House is grand for all ages especially when done via a horsedrawn trap.

See what is playing at the live theatre usually family friendly.

Your B&B hosts will most likely have oodles of ideas.

Travel Tips for Killarney

Tinkers (sometimes known as...

by feline01

Tinkers (sometimes known as gypsies) can be found alongside rural roadways in Ireland. They're like everyone else, just trying to make a living. Many times, they sell or do handicrafts that are beautiful and much less expensive than in tourist areas. Stop and look around, have a chat and maybe make a purchase.

Craic agus ceól

by tvdm about Danny Mann's

The Danny Mann Inn is deffo a tourist haunt, but the food is good and this pub has some of the best live music sessions in town. Make sure you're here early enough to have a good seat and enjoy a pint or two before joining the session or head off to more modern music joints!

Visit Dingle and all its splendours. It's less crowded than Iveragh (although busy enough) and just as nice.
You can swim with a dolphin, hike a trail and sunbathe (providing the weather is good enough), all in one day!

Skellig Michael

by globetrott

Skellig Michael is one of the most beautiful Islands off the Irish Coast - It was inhabited by monks in former times and you may still see the remains of several "Beehive-huts" there - small houses built of stones only (without cement).
You may go to Skellig Michael only by one-day-cruises - mostly from Waterville or other small villages in the Ring of Kerry. Make reservations for that tour, it is not done every day and also weather permitting. The boatride takes about 1-2 hours and you will first pass by the bird-island "Little Skellig". From the landing-place at Skellig Michael you have to climb up hundreds of steps untill you get to the former houses of the monks.
Be prepared that there is NO restaurant, No kiosk and also no toilets at this remote island.
My 2nd and the last picture was taken ON the island Skellig Michael and shows Little Skellig, a bird-rock in front and the mainland of Ireland in the background

"Ireland at its best!"

Ahhh, Kerry the Kingdom...

Well, during spring and summer, Killarney is the seething tourist cauldron that every true traveller dreads. However, outside these busy months, there's lots of cool craic going on as well and the often rainy weather only adds to the atmosphere. In the immediate vicinity, you find beautiful Killarney National Park and gorgeous peninsulas like Beara, Iveragh and Dingle.

If it's the mystical Ireland you're after, the commercialised aspect of Kerry (and indeed the entire country) might disappoint you. But then, when you're here outside the big tourist season, there's still plenty of space for lonely walks amid gloomy spells of rain in hauntingly beautiful vales.

In other words: it's The Island of Legends at its best!
