Five Things To Do Around Tralee This Weekend

Posted by


It’s going to be dry, it’s going to be sunny (at times anyway) and it’s a long weekend. Time to be happy. Here’s a few things on at the weekend…


1. A musical treat…

Award winning director, Oliver Hurley presents a variety of musical theatre excerpts from, The Greatest Showman, Mary Poppins, Peter Pan and many, many more.

This production is full of dynamic dance routines and beautiful musical numbers performed by some of the best up-and-coming young performers around. A show for all the family that will help kick off your summer. It’s on Friday and Sunday night. Click here for ticket info


2. On yer bike…

Get the day off to a healthy and active start at the Fenit RNLI Cycle. The annual 50km fundraiser is a great way to warm up for the Ring Of Kerry Cycle.

The event will see cyclists make their way from Tralee through Farranfore and on to Castleisland before looping back into the county capital. The event will start and finish at O’Donnell’s Bar in Mounthawk.

Registration for the cycle will take place at O’Donnells from 9.15am to 10.15am that morning with a minimum entry fee of €40. The cycle is due to get underway at 10.30am.

3. Na Gaeil’s big day…

They came so close two years ago, but Na Gaeil have a chance to win the Junior Premier Club Championship Final when they take on Beaufort in Austin Stack Park at 2pm.

The Oakpark side are sure to have a big crowd in the park on the day and it would be great to see a Tralee side win it. The supporters are gathering at their Killeen base at 12.30pm to march to the stadium if you want to sample the atmosphere. Admission for the game  for adults is €15 and €10 for students and OAPs.

4. Battle day arrives…

Expect some amazing performances, slick moves, colourful costumes and lots of laughter  when 11 acts take to the stage for Churchill GAA’s ‘Lip Sing Battle’.

It promises to be a great night of entertainment at the Ballyroe Heights Hotel starting at 8pm (doors open at 7pm). There’s still a few tickets left so get in touch with the organisers via their Facebook page here for a fun Sunday night.

5. Join the Rockies for a run…

Who says bank holiday Mondays are boring? Finish the weekend on a healthy note with the  ‘Run for the Rock — Paul Lucey 10km / 5km Memorial Run’.

The event starts at 11am but get there early for registration and the warm-up. There’s entertainment lined up after the race and a big barbecue to ftop off a great weekend. Enjoy.
