Kerry Highlights

Small group 8-day guided walking tour

Kerry Highlights

The County of Kerry consists of a series of mountainous peninsulas divided by deep-sea inlets. Here is found the Macgillycuddy’s Reeks, Ireland’s highest mountain range, centred on the dramatic Carrauntoohil. This itinerary explores the extraordinary scenery of the Dingle Peninsula and the Ring of Kerry. Connecting the coastal peninsulas are a network of ancient routes, many of which form part of the walks that you will enjoy during your holiday.
