Kerry Way - Overview

Small hill peak reflecting in a lake Kerry way

The Kerry Way at 210 km is one of the longest and finest walking trails in Ireland. A looped route that starts and finishes in Irelands premier tourist destination of Killarney. High mountain passes, remote valleys surrounded by high mountain peaks, beautiful old broadleaved forests, mountain lake and small quaint villages.

Killarney has arguably been the tourist capital of Ireland from the turn of the century and further back. The Kerry way is one of the most challenging long distance trails in Ireland.

The walk follows forest tracks, old historic green roads that people have trekked for millennia.
Some of the towns and villages that the route passes through include Kenmare, Glenbeigh, Cahersiveen, and Caherdaniel.

Ogham stones, Iron age forts and early Christian sites line the route.

  • The Vista of the Lakes of Killarney from ‘Ladies View’ is so good that it was named in memory of a Queen’s visit
  • Muckross House and Gardens
  • Torc waterfall
