• Day 1 Arrival in Killarney

    From your point of arrival, use the public transport information we provide to make the journey to Killarney.

  • Day 2 Black Valley - Killarney

    11.8 Miles / 19 Km 5-7 Hrs 420 Metres

    A morning boat trip across the famous Lakes of Killarney with one of Kerry’s foremost storytellers sets the scene for a fantastic tour. You are soon deep in the remote Black Valley, from where you will hike back to civilisation along an ancient track over the mountains. Stop off en-route at Muckross House & Gardens – the centrepiece of Killarney National Park.

  • Day 3 Black Valley - Glencar

    15.5 Miles / 25 Km 7-10 Hrs 810 Metres

    Morning transfer to the Black Valley to continue your walk. Today, you are more likely to meet sheep than humans as you enter some of the most rugged countryside that Ireland has to offer. Two sharp ridges will get those leg muscles working overtime but, as ever, the views are more than worth it.

    Although this walking tour as a whole is classed as 'Moderate', this particular hike is 'Challenging'. Due to the remote nature of the region, there was no easy way for us to make this hike shorter for you. The incredible views will be your reward!
  • Day 4 Glencar - Glenbeigh

    8.1 or 11.2 Miles / 13 or 18 Km 4-7 Hrs 340/410 Metres

    Enter the Caragh river valley before following a rough path through the enchanting Lickeen Forest. A track junction allows you to choose one of two routes around Seefin Mountain. Don’t worry, they’re both beautiful!

  • Day 5 Departure from Glenbeigh
