About this trip

The Kerry way is a long-distance way marked way on  the Iveragh Peninsula in the south west of Ireland. The trail is over  200Km in length, we will be covering a section of this during this  weekend.


Starting from just outside Killarney near Torc waterfall we will start this weekend’s walks along this famous trail.


Over the following days we will walk from Torc Waterfall to Kenmare,  taking in part of the old green road.  Then walking from Kenmare to  Sneem over-looking the Atlantic Ocean and the Ireland’s southern  coastline. Then from here we will walk from Sneem to Caherdaniel where we can  take in some of Ireland’s most scenic views and coastline trails.


The scenery in this part of Ireland is stunning with a rugged coastline, wild mountainous terrain and miles of sandy beaches.


Kerry is famous for its wonderful natural scenic beauty which  attracts many travelers to walk here each year. The Kerry way travels  through Killarney National Park with its very impressive lakes and high  mountains as a backdrop. It takes in some of the area’s most scenic  walking locations and coastal routes. The Kerry way travels around the  coastline of the Iveragh Peninsula rather than across it. 


On the way you  will visit some wonderful small coastal villages such as Kenmare,  Sneem, Caherdaniel and Waterville.  The Kerry way trail is world famous  and is a great way to really get to see the natural beauty of this area.
