We can’t think of a better way to celebrate St Patricks Day then to feature two Irish walks that highlight the beauty of the majestic Emerald Isle.
The Kerry Way and Dingle Way both situated in Southern Ireland are two of the countries most popular walks, encompassing the dramatic Atlantic coastline, rolling green hills and ancient ruins and you may just come across one or two traditional Irish pubs on route too.
Below we explore these walking holidays in Ireland.
From Glenbeigh to Killarney The Kerry Way follows a 135 mile mountain trail passing through valleys, mountain peaks, sandy beaches and ancient woodland.
