Water Adventures

Shannon Ferries!

Here at OnTheQT we always love to do things a little differently! This was no different whilst recently travelling along the Wild Atlantic Way! Of course we could have driven from Kerry to Clare along the WAW route… but why drive when you could get the ferry with Shannon Ferries and enjoy a wonderful crossing across the Atlantic Ocean!

Tralee Bay Wetlands!

It’s always a good idea to say yes to new adventures…and that is exactly what we’ve been doing as we travel along the stunning Wild Atlantic Way on the Western coast of Ireland! Although a beautiful road trip, we’re all about finding activities, adventures and fun things to do along the route and so we were delighted when we took a pit stop at  Tralee Bay Wetlands , just a few minutes drive from the centre of Tralee town!

The OnTheQT crew LOVE water sports, so we were only delighted to pay a visit to Jamie Knox Watersports in Castlegregory! (more…)

Dingle Dolphin Boat Tours!

 You may have heard about the infamous dolphin in Dingle,  Co. Kerry called Funghi… who is exceptionally friendly! However, you may not believe that he likes when people come to visit him! In fact so much so that he does tricks and twirls for his visitors, he races with boats.. you can even go swimming with him!
