About this event

Join the Irish Deer Commission on their Red Deer Rut Watch event in Killarney National Park, County Kerry on Sunday October 10th. The breeding season for wild deer known as the “rut” is one of the highlights of the wildlife calendar as stags roars out to their competitors and battle like gladiators for the right to breed with females. This amazing spectacle has taken place in County Kerry continuously for over 5,000 years and Killarney National Park is acknowledged as one of the best locations in Europe to observe the red deer rut.

This event is kindly hosted by the National Parks and Wildlife Service and is free of charge. The walk takes place at the peak of the red deer rut on Sunday October 10th.

Booking is available online only, places are limited and subject to confirmation, so make sure to book early!

The event is family friendly event and suitable for all fitness levels, with no specialist clothing required. There will be talks by a Conservation Rangers and the Irish Deer Commission, along with a display of native red deer antlers.

Important! Do not attend this event unless you receive confirmation – otherwise you will not be admitted to the event.
