Easter Sunday falls on the first of April this year, but you’ll prove you’re nobody’s fool if you choose to spend Easter in Killarney this year. Book a modern holiday home in Killarney’s Holiday Village, and you will be close to everything for this uplifting spring festival. Raise your spirits after the dark days of winter with a family cycle in Killarney National Park or a romantic meal for two in the heart of Killarney town. Here are some ideas to get your Easter Break in Killarney off to the best start:
Easter Egg Hunt in Muckross
The Easter Scavenger Hunt at Muckross Traditional Farms is one of the high points of the weekend for little ones. The Easter Bunny has been busy hiding golden eggs around the farms, but he has been kind enough to leave clues for you to figure out where the chocolate treasures are hidden.
If you haven’t visited Muckross Traditional Farms before, this is the perfect opportunity. The Easter egg hunt takes place from 1pm to 6pm on Easter Sunday.
Music at the INEC
Whether you’re travelling with the family, a group of friends, or your beloved, you’ll find the perfect entertainment at the INEC this Easter bank holiday weekend. From Jake Carter’s All Ages Show on Good Friday to “Thank You for the Music” (a tribute to Abba and the Bee Gees) on Easter Saturday and The High Kings on Easter Sunday, there is music for within a ten-minute walk of Killarney’s Holiday Home.
Cycle Killarney National Park
Whether you bring your own wheels or rent them at one of the local bike hire outlets, Killarney’s Holiday Village is just minutes away from the car-free roads of Killarney National Park. You can even hire bicycles with child carriers if some of the family cannot reach the pedals yet. Use the cycle track for safe access to the park and choose from miles of trails for pedalling through woods and along lakeshores. Refuel at the cafe at Muckross House before making the short trip back to your Killarney’s Holiday Village holiday home.
Take a Boat Ride to Inisfallen Island
Now that winter is behind us, it’s the perfect time to enjoy a trip across the Lakes of Killarney. Alight on the ancient monastic island of Inisfallen and admire the ruins or travel under the picturesque Bricin bridge all the way to the teashop at Dinis Cottage. You might even see an eagle, and you’re bound to hear some interesting banter from the friendly boatmen.
