Walk in the Wild Side… Edward Dela Torre, Chef (left), Michael Crawley, Mór Active, Simone McCarthy, and Ciara Treacy, leading the way in the Gap of Dunloe, Killarney, to embrace the new  Wander Wild Festival in Killarney, Co Kerry, which takes place from March 27-29 inclusive, heralding the Spring equinox celebrated with pageantry, fire, passion, drama, adventure and exhibitions.
Offering a great escape, the town will come alive with a full-on programme. The inaugural Wander Wild Festival will offer an inside glimpse of what the real Killarney is all about with a springtime celebration of the great outdoors.
 The guest speakers lined up will include writer and storyteller Michael Harding who will explore rituals, the ocean, soul – and chest pain – while ultra-athlete Shane Finn, who completed 24 marathons in 24 days and cycled and ran across America in 36 days, will share his experiences with special guests in a live podcast.
Film will feature prominently throughout the festival with screenings, including The Lost Skytrain, a gripping documentary about the disappearance in 1943 of a WW2 Douglas C-47 plane that was later discovered, with the bodies of five men, by two local farmers on Kerry’s McGillycuddy Reeks. 
The action-packed weekend will also feature great escape events such as guided mountain climbs, kayaking on the lakes, night nature walks and map and compass reading classes with a packed children’s programme focusing on the great outdoors. For the more energetic there will be separate events to keep them challenged and busy with a park run and a Hardman 10k on the agenda. Live music and entertainment will fill the streets and the public houses and visitors can sample an authentic taste of Kerry food and drink along the designated taster trails.Photo: Valerie O’Sullivan /FREE PIC***/Issued 21/02/2020
