Spa GAA is a Gaelic football club based in Tullig, Killarney in County Kerry, Ireland.

The club gets its name from the Spa Well, a source of water with health giving properties, which is situated on the road side in the townland of Tullig, approximately three miles from Killarney town centre. The well was popular in the 18th and 19th centuries, when the people of Killarney often took the mineral-rich water as a cure for various ailments.

Spa GAA Club was founded in 1948. It is a thriving club with over 500 members. The club’s colours are blue and gold. The catchment area of the club is Killarney Parish. The club’s facilities are located in Tullig, 1.5 km east of Park Road Roundabout, Killarney. Recently the Club purchased additional land and another full sized pitch will be ready to play on in mid-2010. Indoor facilities consist of a 600 sq.m. sports hall which is used for indoor football, hurling, basketball, athletics and volleyball. An adjoining building of 800 sq.m. has four dressing rooms, plus a gym, first aid room, kitchen, dance studio and meeting rooms.

Several players from Spa have worn county colours at senior level. Among them are Donie O’Sullivan, Michael Gleeson, Paudie O'Mahony, Pat Casey, Tim Regan, Michael McAuliffe, James Cahill, Niall O'Mahony and Michael O'Donoghue.

The Club caters for boys and girls from u8 to u18 and the adult section has teams at Senior, Junior and U21. We also have a strong tradition in Scór and are the Holders of 5-in-a-row Scór Sinsear Rince Seit.

The club won promotion to Division 1 of the Senior County League in November 2008, and are second only to Dr. Crokes in terms of O'Donoghue Cup wins. In 2009 Spa won their second County Intermediate championship and subsequently won the Munster Intermediate championship.
