What you'll do

I will meet with my hiking group at Applegreen Gas station, Muckross Road, Dromhale, Killarney, Co. Kerry, V93 EFR7 at 10:30. After I have made sure they have the right footwear and clothing for our walk, I will discuss our day with them and show them our route clearly on the map. From this meeting point we have to drive 10 minutes to the starting point near Torc Waterfall. Please, bring your own transport.

We will start our 4 hours 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 hiking issues related to the area, and sites of interest such as standing stones, stone circles, ancient dwelling places, etc.

The walking route will be to Torc Waterfall & Mountain with a great view of lakes and mountains in Killarney National Park.

Every one of my guided walks has its own particular places of outstanding beauty. I always aim to make my walks a very special and memorable experience for my clients.
Other things to note
The walk is on open moorland and tracks suitable for families with children who did previously similar 4 hours walks, with a moderate fitness level. We will climb to Torc Mountain, with a total ascent of 600 metres.

Guests must have own transport to go to meeting point, and after to starting point.

Had a fantastic hike with Cesar today. As well as going to the top of Torc mountain, we then went off the beaten track which had much more spectacular views than the regular track provided. Cesar was very knowledgeable about the area and hill walking in general. He was very friendly and informative. . I would highly recommend him for an unforgettable hike.

Keep in mind that this experience requires a moderate level of physical effort, if you are not able for it, it won't worth it.
