What you'll do

I will meet with my hiking group at St James’ Church, in Glenbeigh village, just 50 metres off N70 road - Ring of Kerry, at 10:00. From here we have to drive 10 more minutes to the hike start point.

After I have made sure they have the right footwear and warm-comfortable clothing for a hill walk, I will discuss our day with them and show them our route clearly on the map.

We will start our walk together at a leisurely pace and I will make sure that everybody is comfortable and happy. We will stop at regular intervals for people to enjoy the scenery, to take pictures, and have some food and drinks.

During the walk I like to talk with my group about issues related to the area, such ancient dwelling places.

Itinerary:

Distance 13 km
Total height gain 800 metres
Duration 5.5 hours.

With start/finish point at Mountain Stage, we will walk on The Kerry Way trail with views of the Atlantic Ocean and Dingle Peninsula during the whole hike.

After one hour we will go up to Beenmore (670 metres) & Drung Hill (640 metres) summits, after lunch break there is a gentle way down to the finish point.

Part of this moderate hill walk is on open moorland and mountain, sometimes over wet ground, long grass & heather, with narrow tracks.

Lovely experience to hike along some of the hills and mountains that wind alongside the Wild Atlantic Way. The views are beyond what the imagination can conceive. Cesar truly loves & is connected to the land & his enthusiasm for it shows. If you go on a hike with him you, too, may also fall in love with the wonderful & enchanting mountains of Killarney. If you book this hike you won’t be disappointed.

My son and I spent New Year's Eve day with Cesar on a hike of the Wild Atlantic Way. What a magical experience! Cesar demonstrated a superb command of the guiding profession, helping two clients with different skill and fitness levels enjoy themselves throughout the (literal & figurative) ups and downs of an Irish December day. He had a careful and caring attitude from the very start, when he sized us up and checked our equipment, all the way through. He even shared snacks!! I couldn't recommend him any more highly!
