Known as the ‘Emerald Isle’ Ireland is indeed a beautiful gem rising out of the Atlantic and the Ring of Kerry, tucked away in the South West is arguably one of Southern Ireland’s most picturesque regions. The correct name for the Ring of Kerry is the Iveragh Peninsula. A wild, unspoiled and exhilarating place to visit, sitting as it does on the Wild Atlantic Way, a huge coastal touring route that covers 9 counties.

The area really does have everything, from expanses of wilderness, majestic mountains and breathtaking waterfalls to stunning sandy beaches and even ancient woodlands where Ireland’s only herd of wild Red Deer can be found. We will take you on a trip to uncover some of its treasures and experience a culture famed for its myths, legends and music.

Suited to regular hikers who like to hike 3 - 10 miles daily, with some challenging sections and elevation gains up to 2,500 feet. Group size 10-14.
