The Kerry Way is a long distance trail in the south West of Ireland on the Iveragh Peninsula in County Kerry. The trail is over 200Km in length making it one of the longest self guided routes and one of the most popular.
This tour takes in some of the most scenic parts of the Kerry Way from Killarney to Caherdaniel.
The trail is walked traditionally in an anti clockwise direction starting and finishing at the very popular town of Killarney.
Killarney is one of Ireland’s most visited parts of the country and extremely popular with tourists. Its not hard to see why when you visit this area for yourself with the Lakes of Killarney and the high peaks sitting behind them given this small town one of the most spectacular backdrops. The National park is also here as well as Muckross house, endless pubs and restaurants playing Irish music and Jarveys (Horse Carts) offering lifts around the lakes and park. This place is really alive during the summer months and a great place to start any walk from.
With its ancients ruins, spectacular beaches, small towns and fine hills the Kerry Way really is a great trail.
