Day 2 Black Valley - Killarney (incl. Lakes of Killarney boat trip)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 Gap of Dunloe - Glencar (via the Black Valley)15.5 Miles / 25 Km 7-10 Hrs 810 Metres
Morning transfer and optional hike through the stunning Gap of Dunloe. Later 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.
Day 4 Glencar - Glenbeigh8.1 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 Glenbeigh - Foilmore12.4 Miles / 20 Km 5-7 Hrs 425/550 Metres
You have the choice to visit the beautiful Rossbeigh Strand before an old coach path takes you around Drung Hill where you pass above the old railway viaduct – a reminder of old local trade routes. Descend into the Ferta River Valley and continue to Foilmore.
