Killarney and its surrounds possess some of the very finest wild mountain landscapes and some of the most spectacular scenery in Ireland, marvellous peaks, wild and remote mountain valleys, high lonely coums and wondrous tranquil lakes. The entire area is steeped in fascinating human and geological history, as well as having a wide and varied wildlife. The Wander Wild Festival is a fantastic opportunity to just get away for a few days, sample this awe-inspiring area and enjoy this spectacle of outdoor related festival events.
St. Mary’s Church
As well as the go-to base for all your festival updates, queries and the ticket desk, Basecamp will host some quirky live music acts throughout the weekend. Join us Friday evening for our opening launch party, festival party on Saturday night.
St. Mary’s Church of the Sloes is a ‘living and active’ Church of Ireland church located in the heart of the town. We are thrilled to be able to use this beautiful and historical setting to host a variety of speakers and film events. The atmospheric setting will certainly enhance the experience.
Café Du Parc
Killarney House & Gardens
Killarney House and Gardens is a treasure of the Killarney National Park and is located right on the doorstep of Killarney town centre. Throughout the weekend of the Wander Wild Festival, Killarney House will offer a selection of guided tours in and outside of the house.
The ‘Golden Gates’ that stand guard at the main entrance form a portal to the wonders of the National Park and its backdrop of spectacular rugged mountains stretching beyond. As you pass through these gates, the sounds of the town fade away and the magic of the Park begins to wash over you with each step you take.
The fantastic Exhibition centre is a form of orientation for visitors within the house and park. It seeks to educate and encourage exploration and participation creating a link between the tangible and intangible heritage of the Park.
ANAM – Killarney Cultural Centre
The newly refurbished centre will host a selection of exhibitions and workshops over the course of the weekend with local talent and subject matter to the fore. It is located just 200m away from basecamp near the cinema.
Killarney will be a festival site throughout the weekend with live music, a food trail coupled with an amazing atmosphere and, of course, a warm welcome ‘Killarney style’!
All proposed events will be subject to Public Health Guidance on Covid 19. In line with this, the wearing of face coverings is recommended in large outdoor events.
