About The Kerry Camino: It is a local initiative to promote walking in the area, specifically akong The Dingle Way between Tralee and Dingle. Walkers can pick up a free walkers pack from the tourist office in Tralee or Dingle. There are stamping stations along the route. the walker stamps their passport. The walker can then get a certificate at the end of there walk in the Dingle Tourist office.
Accommodation on the route is provided by bed and breakfasts and hostels. The walk generally takes 3 days.
The Team behind The Kerry Camino project are made up of committed local people that wish to encourage walkers to our beautiful part of the world. To this end we decided that an initial stretch from Tralee to Dingle would be within our abilities. It is planned that we will extend it out to the rest of the Dingle way.
We had our inaugural walk on the 16th of June 2012 and was opened by Mike Barry the First Irish man to reach the South Pole and Minister for Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht Jimmy Deenihan. We had a very successful launch with over 100 people taking part in the Caminos first walk.
