Ring of Kerry Ireland Walking Holiday

Walking Walking Holidays on the Ring of Kerry - The Derrynane Hotel The Ireland walking holiday you’ve always dreamed of: walk ‘The Kerry Way’, mountain walks, coastal walks, or a stroll on our beautiful beaches. There are walks for all levels and should you wish to join a group, our local guide, Wally, joins our guests every Saturday at the Hotel for a local guided walk.

Here are just a few:

Derrynane Nature Trail – a wonderful walk through the beaches and dunes with all the flora and fauna of the seashore around you. Passing the Mass Rock and Smuglers viewing point, perfect for all the family.

Derrynane Beach & National Park Walk

Lambs Head Walk

The Kerry Way from Caherdaniel Village over the mountain to Staigue and from Beale to Sneem

Fermoyle Walk, Sneem

Lomanagh Walk, Sneem

Derrynane Mass Path Loop – ‘Timeless Walk through Our Liberators Shores’ This walk over the hillside and shoreline and through the grounds of Our Liberator, Daniel O’Connell’s home, tells the history of our people in a time when Catholics were banned from celebrating Mass. The people of Caherdaniel parish living in Farraniaragh, Coomatlauckane, and the islands of Scariff & Deenish (who rowed in by Curragh to Beal-tra-pier) walked this Mass Path during the Penal Times (in the 17th Century) to attend Mass at the Mass Rock which you will visit on your walk. It is fitting indeed, that Daniel O’Connell, one of Europe’s greatest Statesmen, led the Irish people and achieved Catholic Emancipation for our country and that during this walk you will visit his home, the Gardens & Derrynane National Park which his family left to the State

Walking through this beautiful wilderness countryside you will discover the uniqueness of the area, bring your camera and photograph some of the most beautiful views in Ireland whether it’s hill walking or a walking tour of the forests and mountains, beach walks or Derrynane National Park and other historic sites – you will be the envy of your friends when they see your landscapes, seascapes, flora and fauna photos. Guests on a walking holiday will be glad to know that the hotel is well equipped to provide Drying / Cleaning facilities, Freezer packs and substantial packed lunches.
