Walked form Killarney to Waterville. Loved every minute and found the trail was well marked. A little more road walking than the Beara Way, but always on boreens. We were very lucky to have stunning weather. Hope to complete the rest soon!

We did three say hikes along the Kerry Way and loved everyone of them, especially the hike through the Black Valley, which was easily the most difficult, but also the most beautiful.

I do not advise walking the Kerry Way. Sorry - I do not have a guide book to recommend. I would suggest signing up for a local tour that include the Kerry Way.

There are many places to hop on and off this trail. One day we went from Glenbeigh, up onto the trail, around the mountain and came back down again at Rossbeigh beach. Total of about 6-7 miles. Another group went over the... More
