Ring of Kerry

The Kerry Way

Experience the raw, unspoilt beauty of Ireland on the Kerry Way; a 210 km Irish national walking trail tha takes in the highlights of the famed Ring of Kerry route. Walk through rolling landscapes punctuated by lonely valleys, dramatic Atlantic coastlines, peaceful lakes, charming villages, and historic sites.

Your journey begins in the popular town of Killarney, from where the trail then resembles a loop tied by a stem to the town. Although County Kerry is home to the highest mountains in Ireland, the Kerry Way is largely a lower-level inland route along the lower slopes and around the Inveragh Peninsula with views to the wild Atlantic Ocean. Discover remote glens like the Black Valley, and follow green roads and historic tracks that have been travelled for hundreds of years.
