Ireland

Walking and Cycling the Wild Atlantic Way

  • County Kerry's iconic scenery - sea cliffs carved by the wild Atlantic Ocean, soft golden baches, emerald-green farmland criss-crossed by stone walls, mist-shrouded bogs and cloud-torn mountain peaks.
  • Cycle through the stunning Gap of Dunloe
  • Boat trip from Ross Castle through the three lakes of Killarney to Lord Brandon's cottage.
  • Optional 2nd boat trip into Dingle harbour in search of Dingle's most famous resident 'Fungi' the Bottlenose Dolphin

Kerry is the proud owner of Ireland's 10 highest peaks and a vast national park containing the country's oldest oak forests. A haven for hikers and cyclists, with magnificent views of land and sea at every turn. Kerry also boasts an abundance of welcoming towns, B&Bs and cosy pubs in which to rest weary feet. Admirably referred to by locals as 'The Kingdom', Kerry will give you a striking, authentic and truly memorable experience of Ireland with its astonishing natural beauty, enriched by the warm welcome of its people.

The Wild Atlantic Way spans the full Western coast of Ireland and on this holiday you explore its wonderful Southern peninsula. With one of the country's finest national parks as its backyard, the lively tourism hub of Killarney is often the starting point for Kerry's two famed loop drives: the larger Ring of Kerry skirts the mountainous, island-fringed Iveragh Peninsula. The more compact Dingle Peninsula is like a condensed version of its southern neighbour, with ancient Christian sites, sandy beaches and glimpses of a hard, unforgiving land. Killarney's exquisite beauty makes it one of Kerry's most popular tourist destinations. We ensure you escape from the crowds, along a mountain pass, an isolated cove or an untrodden trail.
