Sorry for the late reply. At the time when you asked I was going to suggest to the Committee leave it til start of April and make a decision. The situation seemed to accelerate  we discussed it and agreed that we needed to cancel the event and began issuing.
5th of September we are doing one day of hiking  from Tralee to camp it is the most we can really guarantee at this stage as we may have to keep people spread out in the buses.
we know that we will have to take precautions for Covid 19 in September and there will probably not be a vaccine available at that date and this is what we feel we can plan for at this stage.

As the mathematicals show that COVID19 will be peaking between April and June, do you have date by which you will decide whether to have the event or not?

It should be a standard list for a day hike

Boots or trail shoes not  runners
Sufficient water (I carry 2 litres)
Some food day 1 is away from any shops as is day 3
rain gear
Sun hat/ sun screen sunglasses
Spare socks
Woolen hat
Base layer top it will not be cold enough for full  length base layer bottoms
Walking trousers or shorts
Neck Gaitor
year before last it rained at the very start of the walk on the first day and did not rain for the rest of it last year it was clear and dry but a bit chilly so perfect walking weather.

I have 2 suggestions neither of them ideal

you could keep on walking to Inch. this is not as mad as it sounds as the trail to camp was improved last year and it shortened the time of our organised walk by an hour

you could catch a bus back to tralee sleep there and get a bus back out again in the morning
you could look in castlegregory and ask if they could collect you

I will pm you our accommodation list there might be a couple there you have not seen.

I am planing to do the Kerry Camino during my Easter break in Austria. I am already looking for some places to stay on the Camino. Especially in Camp I only found Accomodations that would cost more than 90 per night, which is not affordable for me. Do you have any recommodations and names of accomodations where it is possible to stay for one night for a more affordable price?

Kindest regards and thank you
Andrea

Hi Sorry for the delay in replying !

Nope it is not us! there are plenty of pilgrim path style walks being started up around the country and I say more power to them it is small locally based organisations like ours here in the kerry camino that can help to bring increased sustainable tourism to our less famous spots. We are a voluntary organisation and we run one organised walk per year between Tralee and Dingle on the dingle way this one walk provides us enough money to do all our printing of passports and websites and marketing.

Sorry I cannot help you with that.
