Tralee Things to Do: 11 reviews and 12 photos

The Tralee canal extends from a marina area in the town out to Blennerville and beyond to the coast. There is no commercial traffic these days but the towpath is probably more used nowadays than ever before. I visited in February and took the option to jog the 3km to the sea. Flat, scenic (the mountains rise up over the kingdom of Kerry away to the left), and traffic free - enjoyed the run immensly. You can't get lost and theres always a friendly face or two getting some exercise as well. Dogs must love it.

Also much used by bird watchers who use the sanctuary areas the canal runs through.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
