Stag Rutting Season

Two Stags Rutting Killarney Co. Kerryc

Identified by their majestic red coats (that darken to grey / brown colour in the winter) the red deer was one of 3 deer species native to Ireland. Despite a significant decrease to under 60 deer, they are now flourishing due to excellent conversation and management.

Breeding season (rut) starts in late September / October offering a rare chance to see these magnificent animals lock horns. First comes the roars, echoing and marking the start of the session. Then with horns, that have grown at up to a rate of inch a day, they clash!

People have been known to come from across the globe to in an attempt to catch a glimpse of this flighting event.

Remember Stag rutting season begins late September, so book you trip with now to avoid missing out.

Eagle Spotting

White Tailed Eagle Lakes of Killarney

In 2015, white-tailed sea eagle chicks successfully hatched and flew their nests in Co. Kerry. The first to do so in 100 years!

This really does make it a sight for sore eyes. For one set of expectant parents this was the third attempt. The birds have been reintroduced from Norway and the project has seen 100 of these beautiful animals finding new homes in Killarney National Park. The birds (including chicks) have been sighted by fisherman and tourist alike especially around the Lough Lein area.
