The great news is that these local looped trails and The Kerry Way itself are way-marked. This means we can simply point you in the right direction to start, allowing you to complete them self-guided or we can arrange an experienced guide with an indepth knowledge of the area. In this event, you can can contact us to let us know your requirements.
In all cases when venturing out on these walks we recommend that you have proper gear including hiking Boots, rain gear, water and snacks. Many walkers also like to change to trainers or walking shoes when walking along the sealed tarmac roads.
