7 days
About this activity
Day 1: Arrive in Glenbeigh

From the Kerry, Cork or Shannon airport, take a bus to your first accommodation in Glenbeigh. This quaint town sits on the edge of the Atlantic and welcomes you into their pubs that are filled with traditional Irish music and dance!

Day 2: Glenbeigh to Foilmore

Leaving Glenbeigh, you begin your journey by crossing over the Behy River. Next, go over Rossbeigh Hill where you will have incredible views looking out over the Dingle Bay and the Dingle Peninsula. The Kerry Way then follows an old coach road along the slopes of Drung Hill, giving you stunning views over the Atlantic along the way. You finish your day in Foilmore.

Day 3: Foilmore to Waterville

This segment of your journey takes you inland along a gentle heather and peat covered ridge. You will cross over a number of small hills called Keelmagore, Kanckayahaun, Coomduff and Knag, and travel through the Inny Valley. This day gives you spectacular views of both the ocean and land along your route! To get to the town of Waterville, you will travel on a series of minor roads. One of Waterville‟s most known residents was the great Charlie Chaplin!

Day 4: Waterville to Caherdaniel

You begin your journey north towards the town of Leenan. These valleys were once occupied by many farmers prior to the potato famine, and are now frequented by sheep and livestock. You continue on until you reach the forest of Lettershanbally. Making your way you climb upwards, walking along the side of a mountain that overlooks Killarny Fjord, a beautiful sea coast that runs into the Atlantic.

Day 5: Caherdaniel to Sneem 

The start of today‟s walk brings you inland to go around the base of Ballycarnahan Hill. Afterwards, you will be rewarded with wonderful views across the inlet of Kenmare! Walk along “The Old Butter Road” which was used in the 19th century to bring butter to Cork for foreign export. You can take a short detour from your route to visit Staigue fort. This fort is one of the largest and finest ring forts in Ireland and can be dated back to the first century BC.

Day 6: Sneem to Kenmare

The walk from Sneem takes you through Derryquin Forest and along the cliffs of Kenmare Bay. This part of your Kerry Way walk is less challenging and only has minor rises and falls. Along your walk, you will pass the 19th century Dromore Castle which was built for Denis Mahony, a minister of the Church of Ireland. 

Day 7: Kenmare to Killarney

The final day of your journey takes you along the Kenmare Road. This dated road will bring you through the remains of old farms, small fields and potato furrows. You may also come across some red deer roaming the land on your walk!
