The highlight of the celebration was a mindFULL chat with Dermot Whelan, renowned for his expertise in mindfulness and well-being.

Dermot's engaging session offered valuable insights and practical tips for leading a more mindful life, captivating the audience with his wisdom and humour.

The festivities continued with DJ Donal spinning great tunes that had the children dancing and enjoying themselves throughout the day.

The music provided a lively backdrop for the celebration, ensuring that the younger guests were thoroughly entertained. Later in the afternoon, there was a captivating showcase from Kinsale Mead.

Adding to the vibrant atmosphere, Polka 4 took to the stage to get the foot tapping and blood flowing with their vigorous arrangements, mixing local polkas and slides with jigs, reels and songs.

The band’s arrangements breathe new life into these time-honoured melodies, infusing them with their unique interpretations while preserving the essence of the traditional tunes.

Attendees included not only family and friends but also many previous guests who have cherished their stays at The Brehon Hotel and Spa over the past two decades. The event was a wonderful opportunity to reconnect and celebrate the memories and milestones that have shaped the hotel's rich history.

" We are immensely proud to celebrate our 20th birthday with such a wonderful gathering of people who have been a part of our journey," said Neil Grant, General Manager of The Brehon Hotel & Spa.

"This milestone is a testament to the dedication of our staff and the loyalty of our guests. We extend our heartfelt thanks to our local suppliers — Muckross Creamery, Skellig Six 18, Killarney Brewing and Distilling, and Kinsale Mead — whose exceptional contributions have made our celebration truly special. We look forward to continuing to provide exceptional experiences for many more years to come.”

The award-winning Kingdom Pride in Kerry festival is back next week and Killarney will take centre stage.

Kingdom Pride will be celebrated in towns all across the county from July 17 to 21.

The organisation’s flagship Party in the Park event will be held again in Killarney House and Gardens, following the Pride march in the town centre on July 20.

This year, in solidarity with the people of Palestine, Kingdom Pride in Kerry is inviting the people of Kerry to come to show their unity by bringing Palestinian flags and kites to the march, and to the Party in the Park.

“Pride is a protest for human rights all over the world. Here in the Kingdom, we have been so lucky to receive tremendous community support from our allies and supporters, and we see the struggle for liberation of all peoples as a united cause,” said Daniel Quirke, chairperson of the organising committee.

“Our events have always welcomed everyone, regardless of gender, orientation, religion, or nationality. We truly believe that together we can create positive change through caring for and loving one another. This year is no exception, and we look forward to helping to highlight the Palestinian cause, and to bringing people together to keep generating positive change for all people.”

Events will take place in Cahersiveen, Listowel, Killorglin, Tralee and Dingle, and include an Irish comedy night with Áine Gallagher, an Irish-language movie screening, yoga, sea swimming, poetry and storytelling, bowling, pitch and putt, a lively drag night at the INEC, and plenty more for people of all ages.

“We do our best to keep tickets as low-cost as possible, and we have lots of events that are totally free to attend. It is important to us that people can share Pride with us, regardless of income. Especially with the rise of the cost of living putting a strain on people’s pockets.” added the chairperson.
