Walking the Kerry Way

The Kerry Way is deservedly Ireland's most famous long distance walk as well as its longest. This 215km walking route loosely follows the route of the Ring of Kerry. Starting and finishing in the magnificent Killarney national park this walk has everything. From stunning lakes with dramatic mountain backdrops to hidden valleys, panoramic ocean views and forest clad rivers, this walk has it all.

Kerry Way Map

Kerry is known for having the highest mountain range in Ireland, the MacGillycuddy Reeks and the Kerry Way passes close to Carrauntoohil, the highest mountain in Ireland. The full Kerry Way can take between nine to thirteen days to walk and as a result we have put together two different types of walking holiday for the Kerry Way.

The first is our Kerry Way Mountaineer walking holidays for those who wish to walk between 20-30km a day and then there is our Kerry Way Rambler walking holidays for thise who wish to walk between 10-20km a day. You can see full details on each of these holidays below.
