Kerry Way Rambler Five Days

Your Kerry Way Walking Holiday Includes:

Kerry Way 5 Day Rambler Itineary

We will meet you at Kerry Airport or Killarney train station and take you to your first guesthouse in Killarney. Your guesthouse is located beside the Killarney National Park, and you have the option of an easy looped walk to Ross Castle and Killarney Lakes this afternoon. Your guesthouse is walking distance from the vibrant main streets of Killarney with their many fine pubs, restaurants, cafes, and shops. Live traditional music can be enjoyed every evening in the town before setting off in the mountains tomorrow.

This morning after breakfast our driver will bring you the 5km to Muckross House and the start of your Kerry Way adventure. Initially passing the beautiful eighteenth century façade of Muckross House you follow the shores of Killarney Lake before ascending towards the stunning Torc Waterfall and onto the old Kenmare coaching trail. A wonderful sense of peaceful isolation can be felt as you make your way west towards Galway’s Bridge and along the shores of the most southerly section of the Killarney Lakes. After passing Lord Brandon’s Cottage you enter the Black Valley and your guesthouse for the night is shortly ahead. There are no restaurants or pubs in the Black Valley so dinner is in your guesthouse tonight.

Today’s walk is shorter than yesterday but offers an unbeatable route through the heart of the Black Valley. After passing the local church and small shop the Kerry Way passes by some stunning lakes, rivers and waterfalls before reaching the end of the valley. Here the trail climbs over the pass and on a clear day the views over the Bridia Valley could bring a tear to your eye. Descending slowly, you reach the valley floor and shortly afterwards you come to your guesthouse for the night, a magical place we think you’ll agree. There are no pubs or restaurants locally, so dinner tonight is at your guesthouse.

The first section of today’s hike is relatively challenging (steep & narrow), so we offer the choice of transport to the Climber’s Inn, Glencar thus shortening the hike to 14km (instead of 25km)

From the Climber’s Inn you soon join the Caragh River and walk along its pretty banks into the forest. After Drumbane Lough you turn left and ascend into Lickeen Woods with its almost rainforest density. Your efforts are rewarded at the top with stunning views over Caragh Laker. Out of the forest you have some nice river side locations to stop for a picnic before ascending to the Windy Gap. Once through the gap you enjoy some of our favourite views on the Kerry Way looking down to Glenbeigh and the Dingle Peninsula beyond.  Descending you soon arrive at the coastal village of Glenbeigh with its lively pubs and nearby beaches.

After breakfast, you can enjoy an easy walk down to Rossbeigh Beach. The 5km long beach sits in an enviable position between the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula. You are surrounded on one side by the high peaks of Drung Hill and on the other the Slieve Mish mountains of Dingle. The walk to Rossbeigh plus the entire beach and back is 12km but you can choose to walk a section if this suits better. Depending on the time of your train, bus or flight our driver will then meet you at your guesthouse or at Rossbeigh Beach and bring you onto your connection at Killarney Train Station or Kerry Airport.
