On this scenic section hike through Killarney National Park you pass through old oak forests, rich with lichens, and home to Irish deer. See the verdant moss-covered woodland surrounding the Torc waterfall and Muckross Estate. With views across the Killarney Lakes, you’ll soon find yourself back in the bustling small tourist town of Killarney itself, where you can raise a glass at one of the many pubs or bars to having completed the Kerry Way.
