If you really want to explore Kerry, then there’s no better way to do it than by foot. From short walking breaks that stretch your legs to week-long treks to witness the scenery, there really is a walking route for everyone. With 26,000 Acres of National Park surrounded by Kerry's wonderful landscapes and wilderness and miles of nearby golden "blue flag" beaches there are few places elsewhere on this earth that can offer the outdoor enthusiast such wonderful choice within such an intimate and hospitable location. It is said that "in Killarney, you will find a different walking route for every day in the year". At any time of year, with or without guides, walkers can choose from low level parkland walks around beautiful lakes and through some of Ireland's oldest Oakwoods, to higher level hill walks on old coach roads and bridle paths, or for the more adventurous, take on the 3000 feet + summits of the iconic MacGillicuddy Reeks.
The concierge team at the hotels are happy to recommend one of the many designated walking paths in the area; everything from a hike up Ireland's highest mountain to a gentle stroll through Killarney's National Park. Walking guides can be organised to suit your requirements.
