The trail is over 200Km in length making it one of the longest self guided routes and one of the most popular.

About the Trail

The Kerry Way trail is walked traditionally in an anti clockwise direction starting and finishing at the very popular town of Killarney.

Killarney is one of Ireland’s most visited parts of the country and extremely popular with tourists. Its not hard to see why when you visit this area for yourself with the Lakes of Killarney and the high peaks sitting behind them given this small town one of the most spectacular backdrops. The National park is also here as well as Muckross house, endless pubs and restaurants playing Irish music and Jarveys (Horse Carts) offering lifts around the lakes and park. This place is really alive during the summer months and a great place to start any walk from.

There are also many other fine small towns along the Kerry way such as Sneem, where I suggest you visit a small Deli to get some local cheeses and a great sandwich for your days walk.  There is Waterville where Charlie Chaplin used to bring all his family for holidays as he used to love doing some sea fishing here. Of course you could stop here and visit the Skellig Islands of the coast of Kerry. The Islands were once an ancient monastery during the 6th to 9th centuries and more recently the film location of Star Wars and the last Jedi. With its ancients ruins, spectacular beaches, small towns and fine hills the Kerry Way really is a great trail for walking or hiking.

We have broken down the Kerry Way trail into manageable stages for you. Allowing approx between 20 – 25Km per day.

Wonderful Wicklow Experience

Review of Hilltoptreks

We had an excellent trip walking the Wicklow Way from Marlay Park to Iron Bridge. Terry arranged everything perfectly for us and it was an incredible way to celebrate my 30th birthday. We highly recommend using Hilltop Treks.
