How to Get Here     Where to Stay     Where to Eat


Extend your Festival stay and see more of Kerry, there is plenty to be found on the world famous Wild Atlantic Way. The Wild Atlantic Way is the world's longest defined coastal touring route. It's inspiring, renewing, relaxing and invigorating, and yours to experience however you choose. Kerry and Tralee are at the heart of the route, which extends to the stunningly beautiful outreaches of Slea Head drive in Dingle (immortalised in films such as Quiet Man and Far and Away). So why not take time before or after the Festival to explore this unique and unspoilt part of Ireland. Full details, routes and maps at
