We visited the seal and wildlife sanctuary during our summer holiday to Ireland. This sanctuary is situated outside the beautiful town of Dingle in Kerry. We visited there on a Sunday afternoon and paid 22 euro entry for a family of 4. Two adults and 2 children aged 13 and 6. Both the children enjoyed it. On arrival you can buy a bag of seed to feed the birds for 1 euro. The birds obviously love the seeds but Murphy - the goat - loves it even more. Straight away he was a hit with the children and they enjoy Murphy as much as the seals.
The seals were very beautiful and each of them had a story which was told by the lovely volunteers who take care of them. The volunteers make the place interesting and happily tell the stories of how the seals came to be with them and what they have done with them to date. We enjoyed watching the seals play around together and especially during feeding time when the seals and the local seagulls competed for the fish.
It's a very peaceful and tranquil place. It also has a huge playground, fully equipped that the kids can run around in. There is a restaurant but it wasn't open on that day. We did see others with their own picnics.
A good value way to spend an afternoon.
