This hiking itinerary enables you to explore the south west corner of Ireland. Considered one of the finest drives in the world, it is magical on foot, from rugged cliffs to golden beaches, small villages, green pastures, peat bogs and always picturesque mountain ranges. You will see the “real” Ireland, away from crowds and only the sounds of nature to accompany you. This area was first settled around 300 BC by the people of Ciar – an early Celtic Tribe, and your holiday will immerse you in almost 10,000 years of dramatic history.
Starting in Killarney near the magnificent Three Lakes you walk south to the heritage town of Kenmare, then through the old villages of Sneem and Caherdaniel before swinging westward with views of the monastic Skellig Islands Your route continues to Waterville – a favoured fishing location for Charlie Chaplin – through Caherciveen before finishing in Glenbeigh.
