hi Diddler,
depending on where you are coming from you will probably need to stay in Tralee the first night and collect your Camino Pass from the tourist office on Denny Street and head off on the first day to Camp there are local companies that will do this for a fee contact a company like southwest walks for more info failing that it should be easily a matter of booking a taxi to bring you bags to your next stop. the first days walk is about 6 hours it begins in St john's Catholic church on Castle street in Tralee and minor paths then meets up with the trailhead beyond blennerville at the foot of the Slieve Mish mountains conditions on the trail are mostly good but certain sections are affected  during wet weather . You can shorten the first days walk slightly by coming off the trail in lower camp see the signs for the railway tavern and the junction bar.

the second days walk goes as far as Annascaul it consists of minor roads and some greenway paths. 

the third and final day is between Annascaul and Dingle is again minor roads and some greenway paths.

as an introduction look at this by a walker  http://www.kerrycamino.com/walkreport.php (http://www.kerrycamino.com/walkreport.php)
