Walking & Hillwalking

Following reasonably closely the route of the Ring of Kerry but taking in even more tranquil areas and breathtaking scenery is the Kerry way – the longest way-marked trail in Ireland, taking in Killarney National Park, mountain passes, and coastal paths. Its circuit of the Iveragh Peninsula is 215k (135 miles). At Carrig, we can provide you with maps, guides and advice on walking the Kerry Way as well as the Kerry Mountains.

With the magnificent backdrop of the ‘Reeks’, Carrig Country House Hotel is within a stones throw of some of the finest walking and climbing in the country.
