Walking on Torc Mountain with views of the Upper Lake

The Kerry Way 5 Days & 4 Nights

Experience the raw, unspoilt beauty of Ireland while walking part of the enchanting Kerry Way, Ireland's longest waymarked footpath. This route takes in a variety of landscapes, from some of the most photogenic parts of Killarney National Park to crossing remote glens and walking on peaceful lakeside paths surrounded by mountain scenery. Although the Iveragh Peninsula is home to the highest mountains in Ireland, the Kerry Way is largely a low-level inland route. This classic national trail is a must for anyone who wishes to discover the real flavour of Ireland.
