Ireland's fabled County Kerry consists of a series of spectacular mountainous peninsulae divided by deep-sea inlets. MacGillycuddy’s Reeks form the centerpiece of the Ring of Kerry, a 179-kilometre circuit from Killarney, via Killorglin, Cahersiveen, Waterville, Kenmare and back to Killarney across Moll’s Gap and past Ladies View – one of Ireland’s most famous viewpoints. Weaving between these points are a network of ancient paths that are nearly as old as the land itself, many of which form part of a long-distance track known as the ‘Kerry Way’.
Please join us for this guided hiking, boating and cultural adventure on the beautiful Emerald Isle. This small country is immersed in history and its friendly people express their lyrical nature in the lilting warmth of their welcome, their music and their story telling. Ireland alternates between small villages with quaint streets and the requisite pubs, where we’ll listen to lively music, and wild Romantic island, coastal, wooded and mountain landscapes. It has inspired poets, musicians and artists – and it will likely inspire you as well.
