Escape Rooms Killarney

Killarney Escape Rooms

The much beloved Killarney Escape Rooms feature next on our list, and they are the perfect group activity. Offering a choice of two different scenarios you and your group must expertly solve a mystery and find all the clues in order to escape. There are two games to chose from “AGENT M.W” a game where “The Irish equivalent of 007, Agent M.W, has been kidnapped.

As fellow Agents, you need to locate his weapon to secure his safe release by interpreting and decoding the various cryptic messages he’s left in his office”. The second game is “The Black Valley” a game in which “It’s 1977 and the Black Valley, County Kerry has just become the last place in Ireland to be connected to the National Electrical grid.

Some of its inhabitants are still a little disconnected from normality however”.

Muckross Traditional Farms - Destination Killarney

Muckross Traditional Farms

Step back into the past on Muckross Traditional Farms and visit a very different Ireland – the Ireland of the 1930s and 1940s. Then, a trip to the well was still a daily chore for the housewife and electricity had yet to be introduced to the countryside. Visit three separate working farms (small, medium and large), each complete with animals, poultry and machinery. The farm dwellings are furnished in traditional style, complete with dressers, settle beds and meal bins. There is also a Labourer’s Cottage, a Carpenter’s Workshop and a Blacksmith’s Forge. Bring a group here for the day and immerse yourself in some of Killarney’s glorious past.
