A diverse and rolling day's walking along forest paths, minor roads, and across hillsides with scenic views stretching out across the bay.
The trail takes you out of Glenbeigh to cross the River Behy, over Rossbeigh Hill where you will have fantastic views looking out across the Dingle Bay and over to the Dingle Peninsula.
The Kerry Way continues onto the slopes of Drung Hill to follow an old coach road into Foilmore. Please refer to your documents for your pick-up details for the transfer to Cahersiveen.
Much of this route follows country roads with no pavements so take good care. Although the roads and lanes can be quiet it's always best to walk on the right to face any oncoming traffic and make yourself as visible as possible.
There is a risk of ticks in the grass. Use insect repellent and check your body on arrival in Foilmore or Cahersiveen.
Tips en hints
Food & Drink:
There is nowhere en route to buy food, so it is best to speak with your host to arrange for a packed lunch to be made for you or buy lunch from a shop in Glenbeigh before setting off.
On arrival in Cahersiveen, there will be restaurants, cafes and bars to refuel.
Along with your usual gear for a day in the hills, you should consider packing gaiters, poles, and an extra layer along with a solid good-quality pair of waterproof boots of course.
