Guided Nature Tour

Join our resident ecologists for a guided tour of the habitats within the Wetlands reserve.  You will explore our marshes, ponds and gardens and discover what makes them unique. 
Along the trail you will encounter familiar animals and plants, many of which can be found in your parks and home gardens but hopefully come away from the experience with a new appreciation for them after learning about their lifecycle and the role they play in the ecosystem. 
This Nature Tour will also help you show you some easy ways of making your own gardens more biodiverse and an introduction to the Tralee Bay Special Area of Conservation.

  Please make sure you maintain social distancing at all times

What Our Visitors Say

  • Tripadvisor Review at Tralee Bay Wetlands


    We booked a guided tour through the wetlands and it was great. We really enjoyed it. Thomas (I think!) was our guide. He had a lovely relaxed approach and was extremely informative. We had our 2 little girls with us aged 5 and 3 and he was really good with them and made sure to include them in the tour. We saw ducks, ducklings, birds, swans, signets and even a fox. We did the pedalos as well which was also very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend a visit to the wetlands and I would return again in the future.
