A gentle walk combining woodland paths with views of the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, Lough Caragh and the Dingle Peninsula.
Panoramic views to the wooded valley of Glencar and Lough Caragh enchant you as you round the hill and then ascend the gentle lower slopes of Seefin. Glenbeigh is situated on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean and is a great place to revel in traditional music and old-world pubs.
The terrain is a combination of riverside paths, gravel tracks, forest paths and some minor roads. 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 steepish ascent to Windy Gap (340m) followed by a steep descent, please take good care, especially in wet and windy conditions.
There is a risk of ticks in the grass. Use insect repellent and check your body on arrival in Glenbeigh.
Tips en hints
Food & Drink:
As you are walking through remote locations along the Kerry Way there will not be any lunch spots or cafes along the way. Make sure to take a packed lunch with you and plenty of water and snacks before setting off. There are various choices for food and drink once you reach Glenbeigh.
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.
