Visit the en­chant­ing Fes­tive Hall at Kerry County Mu­seum...

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - CHRISTMAS IN TRALEE -

IT might sound like the old­est cliché in the book, but Kerry County Mu­seum is a gift that keeps giv­ing the whole year round for the com­mu­nity it serves. It’s a build­ing with a rich his­tory that has al­ways, in essence, be­longed to the peo­ple of Tralee.

As well as be­ing a repos­i­tory for his­tor­i­cal ex­hi­bi­tions and home to some of the county’s an­cient arte­facts, it’s the in­ter­ac­tive events that it hosts through­out the year that make it a truly in­valu­able com­mu­nity re­source. Christ­mas is no ex­cep­tion and the count­down is now on to ‘The Fes­tive Hall’ which is set to en­chant chil­dren and adults alike over the next few weeks. Christ­mas is a sea­son for de­light­ful fun-filled ex­pe­ri­ences that the whole fam­ily can en­joy. Thank­fully, this is a view also shared at King­dom County Mu­seum who are lay­ing on a host of cheery char­ac­ters that will come to life from Christ­mas tales, old and new, to take you on a cap­ti­vat­ing tour of its mag­i­cal hall.

There will be lots of fun and games with the guides as they es­cort you to meet the man him­self, Santa Claus. Santa will, of course, have a lit­tle gift for ev­ery child that comes to see him as he likes noth­ing bet­ter than pos­ing for pho­tos with vis­i­tors.

The Fes­tive Hall dates and sched­ule is as fol­lows: Satur­day and Sun­day (Dec 8-9) Satur­day and Sun­day (Dec 15-16). The fi­nal events will take place on Satur­day and Sun­day (Dec 22-23). Guided tours ev­ery halfhour each day. First tour at 11am, last tour at 6pm.
