Hiking - Kerry Way
Kerry Ireland

The Kerry Way is a long distance walking route of 215 km (135 miles) traversing the Iveragh Peninsula (Ring of Kerry) in the southwest of Ireland.

Starting and finishing in Killarney, The Kerry Way is one of Ireland’s first Waymarked long distance walk and features remote valleys and expansive coastline providing varied and interesting walking. The Iveragh Peninsula (or Ring of Kerry), the second of the five southwestern peninsulas, is the more popular tourist driving route. You will be walking across it as well as around it and only occasionally will you meet the mainstream tourists.
The north side of the peninsula mirrors the old red sandstone of the Dingle Peninsula, gradually changing as you venture south to the limestone crags of the Beara Peninsula. Long sandy beaches on the north side give way to rocky inlets and coves.

The glaciated Lakes of Killarney have been long famous as a tourist destination and are the centre of the Killarney National Park, home to native oak woods, birch, beech and one of the last remaining herd of red deer. Since their introduction from Norway in 2008, it is also now home to breeding white tailed eagles. The section through Killarney National Park is composed of well-formed trails, footbridges, graded paths and plenty of Way marker signs. Beyond the Park boundaries, trails become sheep paths, old droving and butter roads and formed forest tracks. Modern recycled plastic Way markers and stiles are interspersed with wooden signs, which date to the original marking of the route.

There are no great ascents but there are some long and challenging days. This is not a route for the faint hearted, or the first time hiker!
