It's perfect for families big and small as they get to choose between a Sleigh Ride through the twinkling lights of Killarney town or a ramble through the winter wonderland of the Killarney National Park aboard the horse-drawn Christmas Carriage.

Tickets went live on Tuesday and so far there has been great demand.

Dates for this year's rides include: November 26 and 27, December 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 16, and December 17 to January 2 - excluding the December 25, 26, and 27. 

Killarney Sleigh Rides will also be running a Christmas colouring competition in the coming weeks so keep an eye on their socials.

"We are absolutely delighted to be back again this year with a new website and a stronger presence online," Michael Tangney of Killarney Jaunting Cars and Killarney Sleigh Rides, said.

"What started out a few years ago as a small part of the Christmas in Killarney Festival has fast become a treasured family tradition for so many people. We are also running after Christmas up until January 2 and have gift vouchers available for anyone looking to give the gift of a Sleigh Ride this Christmas."

Laura Tangney added that Killarney Sleigh Rides is a wonderful festive activity for families.

"We are seeing more and more families nationwide travelling to Killarney especially for it as well as the Christmas Magic Parades so it's fantastic for the town. It's a very special part of our business and brand and we can't wait to get back on the sleighs again for what will hopefully be another great season."

Jumpers have helped to raise almost €10k so far – but now it’s a very special jersey which could drive the fundraising numbers up!

A Kerry football jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team is up for grabs via a fundraising link once a donation is made to the Presents for Palliative fundraiser.

On Friday eight local schools including Holy Cross Mercy, Killarney Community College, Presentation Monastery, Lissivigeen, St Brendan’s College, St Brigid’s, St Francis Special School, and St Oliver’s
swapped their uniforms for their most colourful festive gear with funds going to help the amazing services in the Palliative Care Unit/Kerry Hospice Foundation.

“The day took place across the schools involved last Friday (December 2) and looks like it has been a success,” teacher Elaine Moynihan from St Brendan’s College told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The donations from the schools are still being counted but students look to be on their way towards making their goal of €10k.”

The iDonate ‘Fundraising For Kerry Hospice Foundation’ has been very helpful in this regard, she added.

“Anyone who donates via the link and leaves their name will be in with a chance to win a Kerry jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team which will be presented to them before Christmas by a couple of members of the team.

“This was organised by the students involved in the fundraiser as a way to say thanks, and give back, to the members of the community who have gotten involved in the event – the link is live until December 18 and the draw will be made the following day.”
