This scenic route is one of the most beautiful attractions in Ireland. Cliffs, beautiful towns and beautiful ocean views. Killarney with its park and Valentia Island are the most beautiful spots in these settings. If it is possible to choose a day with sunny weather...More

We hiked a week on the Beara Way and the one day on the Kerry Way. After ending the Beara at Kenmare we got on the Kerry and hiked through the National Park and into Killarney. It was a gorgeous hike, and a wonderful day.

You should know there is a new bus that travels around this area! It's called Local Link and goes much more often than the 279A, and also goes to Portmagee, Ballinskelligs, and more. I stay in Glenbeigh in the summer, and... More

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.
