Less than 20 minutes from Tralee you'll find the pretty seaside village of Fenit. This sheltered spot is perfect for families with young kinds and toddlers. The beach is small, the water calm, and best of all, there's a funky little playground just off the car park, which is right next next to the beach too. Check out the quirky yet adorable Mike's Café while you're there - this eco-friendly trail-blazer stocks no plactic bottles in a bid to reduce waste. From the beach take a short scenic walk towards the bronze statue of St Brendan, who hailed from these parts, over the pier, to Samphire Island, home to Fenit Harbour and Marina, and admire the colourful array of 130 sailings boats of all sizes. From here you can also join a charter fishing trip, taking a unique tour to the lovely, historical lighthouse.
