Ring of Kerry Walking on Kerry Way

View our Guided Walking Holiday Tours

No matter where you go in the world, Kerry is hard to beat for a guided walking holiday or cycling experience. In particular the Ring of Kerry's Iveragh peninsula provides great opportunity for exhilarating walking, hiking and cycling. With Sneem being the 'knot in the Ring of Kerry' it's the perfect base for this type of activity holiday.

Typically our walking and cycling guests are blown away by the natural beauty all around our Álaind Lodges accommodation in Sneem. It's not hard to see why. We're surrounded by greenery, quiet roads, lanes and trails and expansive views of the Sneem Dunkerron mountains. Our garden spaces are alive with birds and daily visits from our Kerry Hares.

Guest Can't Wait to Start Their Guided Walking or Cycling Holiday

Unsurprisingly, many guests can't wait to begin exploring the wonderful countryside whether on foot or by bike. This is outdoor heaven as many previous walkers and cyclists will testify.

Guided Walking Holiday

I'm Fergal Harrington and Owner at Álaind Lodges Bed & breakfast and Álaind Walking. I organise guided walking holidays to ensure our guests find the best experiences that Sneem and Kerry offers. As a qualified and experienced Mountain Leader guide, you'll be in safe hands. I personally guide on many of the walks and hikes so that you discover the most amazing places.

Our guided walking holiday packages are tailored to meet different tastes and requirements. For example, some guests want guiding on a Sneem Loop Walk or the Kerry Way. Some seek coastal walking, with fabulous views of the mountains reach down to the sea. While others favour hiking the higher Kerry mountain peaks where the eagles soar. Personally I simply delight in leading a guided walking holiday involving any types of walking.

Help Planing Your Kerry Cycling Trips

Being a qualified Mountain Leader means I also understand how to use and interpret adventure maps both in print and online format. The online formats are particularly useful for planning purposes. I'm happy to help all my cycling guests plan itineraries for their daily cycles. As part of this service, I'll recommend routes and the best places to see while cycling the Ring of Kerry.

This also applies for those driving the Ring of Kerry. Incidentally, whether your walking, cycling or driving, take a few days days to do it. It's a much better and more rewarding experience. You'll enjoy it more than if you rush around trying to complete it in one day.

Of course there's plenty more things to do in Sneem. As well as walking, hiking and cycling, I'm happy to advise on these too.
