 What to do

In Fenit you can get close to nature, beautiful walking around the bay by Fenit Island and on the Blue Flag beach, swimming in the crystal clear water, fishing at the Viaduct , looking out to sea and gazing at the beautiful Slieve Mish Mountains across Tralee Bay. The heritage trail, Slí Bhreanainn, (The Brendan Way) extends from Fenit to Lerrig Cross in Ardfert. Every year several sea faring festivals are held in the village.

Fenit offers plenty of places to stay and have a nice meal. The two village bars have a local seafood menu and a seasonal beach shop serves snacks, ice cream and drinks.

Fenit Harbour has a full service and modern 130 berth marina for boats up to 45 feet. The Tralee Bay Sailing Club overlooks the harbour and enjoys sailing, kayaking and power boating and runs summer camps in sailing for kids.  There are  deep sea fishing  and yacht charters available at the Tralee Bay Angling Club with shore fishing guides, cruises and lighthouse trips in the harbour. 

On the Sporting front, Fenit has to offer the local Soccer club Fenit Samphires, who play in the upper levels of the Kerry District League and boast very good under age teams. The GAA  football team is Churchill and play at the Sportsfield in Spa between Tralee and Fenit. They play football at all levels.

For the kids there is a good sized playground close to the beach and was at one time the Fenit Railway Station. The footbridge still remains for crossing the rail track.
