The Kerry Way is the Irish Republic's longest way-marked trail. The first stage from Killarney National Park to Glenbeigh is inland through wild and spectacular countryside. The second stage aims to be a coastal circuit of the Iveragh Peninsula linking Caherciveen, Waterville, Caherdaniel, Sneem and Kenmare, returning to Killarney. The circuit is about 215km (135 miles).
By using ancient routes between early Christian settlements a walk along the Kerry Way is a journey back in time through the ancient baronies of Magunihy, Dunkerron North and South, and Iveragh. As the Way is mostly at a higher level than the present day roads, it improves on what is already renowned viewing. The route is waymarked, although intentionally discretely.
The Way is mostly below the 300m contour, but rises above this where it crosses passes (the highest point is 385m at Windy Gap between Glenmore and Cahherdaniel. In general the Way, while rough underfoot, should be suitable for family groups, particularly in summer. Care must be taken at other times.
This guide is a fold out map showing the route on a series of 8 panels at a scale of 1:50,000
