This holiday, based in the South West of Ireland in Glenbeigh and Killarney, Co. Kerry, gives you the ideal mix of Kerry folklore and moderate walking.
The Kerry Way is Ireland’s premier walking trail, the main line being some 180km long, taking you through a variety of habitats – ancient oak woods, coast and sand dunes, inland alpine-like valleys and bog/moorland. Based largely on old highways, droving paths and Mass Paths, it has been deemed a ‘Walk through History’. For your holiday, we have selected 4 legs of the Kerry Way that allow us to follow the mythical journey of a blind magician and his band of students from his school on Valentia Island through Killarney on his way to remove a curse placed on the cows of North Cork. Other ancient myths (and more recent history) add flavour to our journey.MAKE AN ENQUIRY
