The Kerry Way - 11 Days & 10 Nights

  • Walking Kerry’s historic trails amongst the highest peaks in the Emerald Isle
  • Soak up the atmosphere of County Kerry’s market villages and towns
  • Lively Irish music and the ‘craic’ of authentic old-world pubs
  • The 2000 year old Staigue Fort is one of Ireland’s best examples of a ring fort
  • Majestic views of the Lakes of Killarney from the grounds of Muckross House
Experience the raw, unspoilt beauty of Ireland on the enchanting Kerry Way; a 210km Irish national walking trail which also takes in the highlights of the famed Ring of Kerry route. Walk through rolling landscapes punctuated by lonely valleys, dramatic Atlantic coastlines, peaceful lakes, charming villages and historic features. Although County Kerry is home to the highest mountains in Ireland, the Kerry Way is largely a lower-level inland route. Discover remote glens such as the Black Valley, and follow old green roads and historic tracks that have been travelled for hundreds of years. Steeped in ancient history, the Kerry Way takes you past Iron Age forts, Ogham stones and old monasteries. This classic national trail is a must for anyone who wishes to discover the real flavour of Ireland.
