Kerry offers some of the very best hikes in the country and is the perfect location for a 5-day hiking staycation. You will get to meet a group of like-minded adventurers and have some fun enjoying the challenge of the hills and picking up some invaluable tips from our expert guides. We will base ourselves in Killarney and stay in a luxurious 4-star hotel like The Brehon, or similar, the perfect place to rest your bones after each day on the hills
Our plan is to take in the best hikes available to us in Kerry such as Carrauntoohill, Mt. Brandon, Purple Mountain and Mangerton. If the weather is less favorable we have the option of doing a low-level walk in Killarney National Park or on the Kerry Way – so we will maximise our time in the Kingdom regardless of what the weather throws at us.
Each day our guided hikes will be lead by one of our experienced expedition leaders. They will teach you the basics of app-based navigation, show you how to read a weather forecast and offer equipment advice to cover both Irish and International expeditions.
Based on the weather forecast we will make a plan each evening for the following day. Our guide will pick the best of the 5 days to climb to Ireland’s highest peak, Carrauntoohil.
* In order to abide by social distancing rules you will need to drive yourself from the hotel to the trailheads each day.
** Please note, if you are signing up as a solo-traveler you must book a single supplement. Due to the ongoing restrictions regarding Covid-19, we must be able to facilitate social distancing between households wherever possible.
