The Kerry Way runs for about 130 miles (210 km) through Ireland's most spectacular mountain landscapes, starting and finishing in the town of Killarney. Dramatic peaks and glens, wild moorlands, lakes and windswept passes blend magnificently with extensive coastal panoramas. The complete walk takes nine days, but it can easily be shortened.
