My classmates and I visited Tralee for our school tour recently and our first stop was The Wetlands. Our teachers and us REALLY enjoyed it! One slightly disapointing thing was that we got very bad weather. The staff handled it very well and brought us umbrellas to stay dry and warm. The gift shop is also very good! The food... More

The whole family came here for a birthday and enjoyed a fantastic day. The children loved the mix of activities and the food which was all very fresh also went down very well. Quite reasonable prices and enthusiastic staff added to the overall enjoyment.

Someone had mentioned that the cafe in the Wetlands centre was nice for lunch so said we'd try it and we were not disappointed. Quite a busy little spot. Staff were friendly, place was spotless and the food was well presented and very tasty. Would have no hesitation in recommending it or returning to it. Definitely one of Tralee's hidden... More

Kids loved this place. Spent 4 hours here. Loads to do for them. Weather was amazing which meant it was even a better experience. Would definitely return again. The lady that we purchased the games to do was very professional and friendly.

This is a lovely place to go, so close to the town but lovely views of the lake and onsite activities. The food is good and it's perfect for a coffee with friends and their kids who all enjoy the playground and the rented fishing rods. The only negative is the prices for the overall visit. A scone is one... More

The Wetland is a very nice and clean place for a start. the boat ride was fantastic, its only a small lake to pedal around. However, the tour was fantastic. Its very informative and the tour guide Eoin is very knowledgeable. He knows all about insects and every single species in the area. Although, the tour is very brief but... More

We loved it. The tour stars with a short video about the wetlands and surrounding areas which was very informative, our guide was so passionate and enthusiastic about the place. Then you go on a boat trip through the reeds, is was so peaceful you forget you are so close to the town. Finally you can go on the walks... More

I have to admit, we probably only visited here because we got it as part of our hotel package, but it was interesting, especially if you like bird wildlife. the boat trip was nice and our guide was very interesting also. There is a cafe and souvenir shop, which is handy. You can also hire pedalo's, was a bit of... More
