The Kerry Way

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.

Your journey begins in the popular town of Killarney, from where the trail then resembles a loop tied by a stem to the town. Although County Kerry is home to the highest mountains in Ireland, the Kerry Way is largely a lower-level inland route along the lower slopes and around the Inveragh Peninsula with views to the wild Atlantic Ocean. Discover remote glens such as the Black Valley, and follow old green roads and historic tracks that have been travelled for hundreds of years.

Enjoy warm Irish hospitality in delightful small market towns and villages such as Glenbeigh, Cahersiveen, Kenmare and Caherdaniel; the ancestral home of Ireland’s ‘Great Liberator’ Daniel O’Connor. County Kerry is steeped in ancient history and 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 flavor of Ireland.
