Guided Kerry Way walking weekend April 12th- 14th

Ireland boasts some of the most spectacular walking routes through its varying landscapes and the Kerry Way long distance walking trail is one of the most popular. We have chosen 2 of the best sections on the Kerry Way to share with you from the coastal village of Glenbeigh along the Wild Atlantic Way & in the heart of the Reeks District.

Friday 12th April 2019 Arrival Day
Welcome to Glenbeigh & your Kerry Way guided walking weekend. On arrival you may have some time to wander around the village or have a magical walk in the Fairy Forest or wet your toes in Rossbeigh beach.
You will have time to settle in and unpack before meeting with your guide at 19.00 hrs. Get to know the rest of the group over a delicious evening meal while your guide gives you a briefing on the weekend ahead.

Saturday 13th April 2019 Walk Glenbeigh to Glencar

Distance: 13km/ 8miles • Ascent 350m/1,150ft

This morning we walk on the Kerry Way from our accommodation in Glenbeigh, through the Windy Gap and downwards into the wooded valley of the Caragh River and storied Glencar. Tales of Fianna warrior bands and of Oisín’s return route from Tír na nÓg introduce us to the Celtic mythology of the area before finishing at The Climbers Inn, Glencar for a well-earned drink before being transferred back to our accommodation.

Reflect on the wonderful day’s walking over our evening meal followed by some light entertainment and a sing song!
