Whilst Kerry does boast the highest mountains in Ireland, the Kerry Way avoids the higher peaks and opts for the lower reaches of mountain ridges. Working its way through a variety of different landscapes and experiences, the trail starts and finishes in Killarney. Looping around the Iveragh Peninsula, the Kerry Way goes anti-clockwise, passing through some of the most isolated and dramatic countryside in the country. The Kerry Way can be divided into 21 sections, although it is quite common for people to walk the trail over several days/weeks, this can be extremely demanding. Our advice is to allow for some extra time, either by including rest days or decreasing the distance walked each day.
