Looking for a unique Valentines gift? Show your partner just how wild you are about them with a trip to the Wander Wild Festival in Killarney this March (24-26th). Get their heart beating with excitement at this unique adventure and wellness festival set in the lakes and mountains of the 25,000-acre UNESCO Killarney National Park.

Whether you’re a couple of adrenaline junkies, or prefer to wander off the beaten track, or are looking for a shared mindful experience, the Wander Wild Festival has something for you. Reach new heights with your partner by climbing Carrauntoohil – Ireland’s Highest mountain – followed by a Samhradh Sauna Experience and a dunk in an ice-cold whiskey barrel to recover. Be paddle partners with a Kayak tour to Innisfallen Island or Ross Castle. If that doesn’t float their boat, show them that you ‘wheelie’ like them with a guided cycle or walking tour of the National Park. 

Explore nature and take your partner’s breath away with a sunrise dip at Dundag, or an enchanting forest bath. Get the heart-rate up with a night trail run on the Old Kenmare Road, elevate to new heights with some rock-climbing and abseiling or slow things down with some yoga, relaxing reiki or reflexology. 

See your relationship from a different angle with a Handstand workshop or enjoy a romantic stroll with a 3D sensory tour of the Blue Pool Nature Reserve with a light and sound installation.

Shuttle buses will transfer people from the town centre to all the activities making the connection from vibrant Killarney to the majestic wilderness of the surrounding natural landscape, quick and convenient!

The town will be buzzing with entertainment over the weekend, with the premiere of two Irish adventure films, a gourmet food trail, a photo exhibition, a spectacular opening Spring Equinox parade to celebrate the end of winter and the rebirth of spring, and live music and entertainment in local bars.

Nothing says romance more than a romantic getaway, and Killarney has something for every taste and budget, from hostels and self-catering to four- and five-star hotels. For a truly romantic experience, with an emphasis on privacy and relaxation, check out Killarney Glamping which offers couples only accommodation for those seeking adventure without compromising on comfort. 

All you need is love, but adventure keeps it interesting, so follow your heart to Killarney this March for wilderness, wellness and wanderlust! Early bird weekend activity packages are now live.
