Tralee Bay Wetlands Centre overlooks the greater Tralee Bay which encompasses over 8000 acres (3247ha) of pristine nature reserve and is a designated Natura 2000 and Ramsar accredited site of, Wetland of International Importance. Tralee Bay is of considerable ecological and conservational significance due to the great diversity of habitats contained within the area. It was among the first Irish sites to be designated under the international RAMSAR convention, a treaty which provides the framework for national action and international cooperation for the conservation and wise use of wetlands and their resources.
The Tralee Bay Wetlands Centre was built with the aim of promoting and raising awareness of biodiversity and natural heritage of the area to visitors and students alike. Tralee Bay Wetlands Centre & Team offer an unparalleled combination of fun outdoor activities and educational elements at affordable prices on our 9 hectare site situated within walking distance of the centre of Tralee town.
