2. A journey back through the ages

3. Stargazing Adventure
Head out under cover of darkness and see the heavens as never before. Look up at the Kerry sky on the Dark Sky Reserve to experience the only gold tier reserve in the Northern Hemisphere as designated by the International Dark-Sky Association. It will be a night your delegates never forget!
4. Ride the Ring of Kerry
Take to two wheels to experience riding through wild landscapes and seascapes, all the while exposed to the raw natural beauty of the Ring of Kerry. Stop en route for an unforgettable display of dogs herding sheep followed by a hearty gourmet lunch.
5. Seaweed sensations from the Wild Atlantic Way
Spend an afternoon foraging for seaweed along the Wild Atlantic Way. After sampling how it tastes, enjoy a truly immersive spa experience in individual hot tubs made out of Irish whiskey barrels filled with hand harvested seaweed, set up on a vantage point overlooking the ocean.
6. Retrace the path of pilgrims and jedi
Bring your group on an unforgettable journey to Skellig Michael. Delve into the lives of the Monks who inhabited a hostile offshore island now home to puffins and Star Wars heroes!
7. Saddle up and hit the beach
Engage the senses by hitting the shores of the wild Atlantic way on an exhilarating horse ride along majestic beaches and coastal paths of the Dingle Peninsula. Reward and nourish the senses afterward learning to cook soda bread and Irish Stew.
8. Step back in time to days gone by
Delight your delegates with an evening at Muckross Traditional Farms, a replica of rural Ireland and times of old. Take over the entire village, experiencing interactive basket making, turf stacking and bodhran playing demonstrations accompanied by traditional food and music.
9. Host your own Celtic Games
Inspire new thinking with a fun afternoon of light-hearted competition, hosting your own Celtic Games. Motivate your group with the chance to try their hand at traditional Irish sports such as hurling and Gaelic football.
10. Make a toast to myths and legends
End an action-packed day with an entertaining tour of the Killarney Brewhouse sampling craft beers named after local myths and legends. Hear stories peppered with local folklore whilst dining in style against a backdrop of the large copper vats.
