In previous times it was also the site of a prison or Bridewell, and that structure has been restored - and re-populated. You will meet people who are in the Bridewell on charges of stealing a cabbage, of begging, and those awaiting transportation to the dreaded Van Diemen's Land.
Foynes Seaplane Museum:www.flyingboatmuseum.com
Foynes, Ireland, became the center of the aviation world from 1939 to 1945. On July 9th 1939, Pan Am's luxury Flying Boat, the "Yankee Clipper" landed at Foynes. This was the first commercial passenger flight on a direct route from the USA to Europe. During the late 1930s and early 1940s, this quiet little town on the Shannon became the focal point for air traffic on the North Atlantic.
During this period, many famous politicians, international businessmen, film stars, active-service-men and wartime refugees passed through Foynes. In fact, the site was initially surveyed in 1933 by Colonel Charles Lindbergh and his wife Ann, who landed in Galway Bay flying his Lockheed Sirius. In December 1935, the Irish Times announced that Foynes would be the site for the European Terminal for transatlantic air services. Colonel Lindbergh returned again representing Pan Am in 1936 to inspect the facilities and also in 1937 to view the departure of "Clipper III".
The old steam train that huffed and puffed for 60 years between Tralee and Dingle was taken out of service in 1953. Most of the track has since disappeared. But a stretch of the line was recently restored, as was one of the original locomotives. And so now you can enjoy the trip by steam between Tralee and Blennerville
Feast of folk theatre:
The handsome stone and brick building that adjoins the carpark of the Brandon Hotel houses Siamsa Tíre, the National Folk Theatre of Ireland. Nightly stage shows portray in song, dance, and mime the social and domestic traditions of rural life. The costumes are colourful, the music is brilliant, and the dance routines are electrifying.
Water has a universal appeal - especially when it comes in the form of slides, waves, rapids, and whirlpools designed for children of all ages to cavort in. The Aqua Dome, Tralee´s £4.5 million waterworld, has all these and more. For example, it even has an exclusive adults-only sauna / steam suite for those who want to unwind rather than make a splash. The building itself is unmissable - stunningly imaginative in design and construction. It´s no wonder the Aqua Dome is so popular; it´s a great place for all the family - whatever the weather.
Blennerville Windmill is Ireland´s only commercially operated windmill. It is also the tallest of its kind in Europe, 21.3 metres high. This 18th century windmill is now open to the public. There are many fascinating workings to be seen as the giant sails rotate. The adjoining building houses absorbing exhibitions on emigration and the history of milling.
The way we were:
Kerry County Museum, housed in the Ashe Memorial Hall, presents the history and archaeology of Kerry in novel and exciting ways. Kerry the Kingdom shows artefacts in their real context with the aid of audio and visual media. The highlight of your visit is the Time Car, which takes you back several centuries and through the streets of mediaeval Tralee.
Kerry´s biggest town is booming. Tralee has prospered in recent years from a huge inflow of investment. Hotels have expanded; restaurants and pubs have flourished; and a huge range of leisure and entertainment complexes have evolved to meet the growing demand. So not only have you the many traditional outdoor recreations: golf, swimming, fishing, sailing, walking. You now have a rich choice of indoor and all-weather pursuits from theatre and cinema to aquafun to museums to galleries.
In August the celebrated Rose of Tralee takes place.
