Primary tabs


Kerry County Council have prepared the Fenit Village Design Masterplan, in conjunction with Carr Cotter & Naessens Architects. It sets out proposals for the redevelopment of the core of the village, primarily from the central green area to the beachfront.

The Masterplan provides for the development of two key sites in the village: the greenfield site including O’ Sullivan’s Bar (the Central Core) and the seafront public realm centred on the playground, greenway terminus and entrance to the beach.

The Tralee Municipal District Local Area Plan 2018-2024 was adopted by the MD members on September 17th 2018 which still has a statutory basis.  An amendment to the Plan is now required in order to include the Fenit Village Design Masterplan, and associated objective, into the Local Area Plan.


The plan making process is a collaborative one and we are looking for your views.
