The Kerry Way is one of Ireland’s longest waymarked Ways, and arguably its finest. It runs for about 130 miles (210 km) through Ireland's most spectacular mountain landscapes, starting and finishing in the town of Killarney.

Each section ends at a village or town with welcoming Irish pubs and B&Bs.
