Discover Our Wetlands

From freshwater swamps and reedbeds to saltmarsh and mudflats

 

The Wetlands Experience

A visit to Tralee Bay Wetlands is an opportunity to learn more about the wonderful history and biodiversity of the Tralee Bay Nature Reserve. The 22-acre site has been landscaped as a microcosm of the coastal wetland habitats of Tralee Bay Estuary to give visitors a taste of what they might find in the reserve, from freshwater swamps and reedbeds to saltmarsh and mudflats. The visit is fully guided by a local expert, and will not only take in the wetland habitats and their associated wildlife, but also a beautifully designed and child-friendly interpretive audio-visual exhibition and a 20-metre viewing tower which overlooks the whole site, and from which you can see right out across Tralee Bay to Mount Brandon to the west and Fenit Island to the north.
