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 Muckross. Your guesthouse is located beside Killarney National Park and you have the option of a looped walk in the park this afternoon. You can visit the famous Muckross House, built in the 1800s for the visit of Queen Victoria. The park has two cafes and number of beautiful lake walks. You can also visit vibrant Killarney or relax with a short hike in the Muckross Woodlands.

Today’s walk (17km, 455m ascent) takes you back through the National Park above Torc Waterfall then ascending to the old Kenmare road. 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 begin to ascend towards the Black Valley and your guesthouse for the night. There are no restaurants or pubs in the Black Valley so dinner is in your guesthouse tonight.

Today’s walk (13km 300m ascent) 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 road 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 with your delightful hosts.

The first section of today’s hike is relatively challenging so for those who prefer we offer the choice of transport to the Climber’s Inn, Glencar thus shortening the hike to 14km.

Today‘s hike (14km or 25km, 420m ascent) begins with a steep climb out of the Bridia Valley up onto the col where you can enjoy magnificent views of the Western Reeks, Lough Acoose and the mountains of Dingle to the north. The way continues onto Glencar where you can stop for a drink in the famous Climbers Inn. Beyond Glencar you are spoiled with stunning views of Caragh Lake and over Glenbeigh and Dingle Bay. A beautiful day that takes you to the coastal village of Glenbeigh with its lively pubs and nearby beaches.

After breakfast, you can enjoy a 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 both sides by the high peaks of Drung Hill and the Slieve Mish mountains of Dingle. The walk to Rossbeigh plus the entire beach and back is 13km but you can choose to walk a section if this suits better. Depending on the time of your onward connection, our driver will then meet you at your guesthouse and bring you onto Killarney or Kerry Airport.
