Hiking The Kerry Way

The Kerry Way is 215 km (135 miles) long, making it the longest marked footpath in the Republic. It starts and ends in Killarney and strays inland for the first 3 days winding through the spectacular MacGillycuddy Reeks past the 1041 metre (3,404 foot) Carrantouhill the highest mountain Ireland before moving around the coast trough Cahersiveen, Sneem, Waterville, Caherdaniel, Sneem and Kenmare.

It is generally well-marked, does not require any special skills and can be walked by any reasonable fit person. If you are staying in Milltown, you might want to pick up a section of the walk between Glenbeigh and the mountains around Glencar or around Caragh Lake.
