Easter in Killarney

Easter in Killarney

1. Kayaking and walking tours

Ah well, I know many of you are probably planning a very lazy bank holiday weekend but, for those outdoor-sy types among us, this could be a treat for you. Outdoors Ireland are organising a whole host of outdoor events throughout the month of April including kayaking, bike tours, guided walks, rock climbing and ridge climbing. So how does spending Good Friday kayaking around the Lakes of Killarney? Now that would be a Goood Friday. For a list of all the activities and prices check out – and if you’re sold and want to book your place you can head over to

2. Easter Sunday Family Day

Easter, like almost every holiday, exists for kids. So, if you’re brave enough to interrupt their chocolate egg guzzling for just a few hours on Easter Sunday, there’s an Easter Sunday Family Day at the Muckross Traditional Farms. There’ll be an egg hunt, face-painting, balloon-making and loads more fun. And it’s totally free. Perfect! The entrance to the Farms is located next to the car-park for the House and is very easy to find.

3. Dublin City Ramblers at the INEC

If like to get your toes-a-tapping and you’re itching for a bit of live music this Easter, you should check out the Dublin City Ramblers at the INEC. The Dublin City Ramblers are one of Ireland’s favourite and most successful traditional music acts and they’ve had scores of hits and awards over their 35 year career. Admission is a very reasonable €11.75 so you won’t be breaking the bank. For more information check out
