Hi Eleanors

sorry for the late reply.

for the last 2 years we have run a sort of 'Camino weekend' where a group of us walk it and encourage people like yourself to join us. we did really well the last 2 years and there was a good and friendly crowd joined us.  People had a good time. We are doing it again this year on the may bank holiday weekend so you and your friends would be most welcome!

other than that you can walk it any time with or without the passport. passports and other documentation are available from the tourist offices in Tralee and Dingle. there will be a charge for the passports as there is a cost in getting them printed.

Hi there. Ii was just wondering about the camino for 2014. I have done the one in Spain before and just wondering how this one goes. Is the route well marked out? Does the group start together and all stay together as such. Also, what is the deal with accommodation. Me and my 3 friends are interested in doing it. Also what is the price. thanks

Sorry I missed this !

To belated answer you questions for the benfit of others
Can we walk without a passport?
Walking without a passport is fine it is the Dingle Way so you can just walk it.

is the signage that good for all 3 days
it is good but not perfect as people occasionally will tear up a sign.

hazards on day one
you need to establish which part of Camp your accomodation is in Lower Camp is reached first and there are a number of B&Bs there. Lower Camp is below the trail so if you get it wrong its a walk uphill back to the trail.
if your accomodation is in upper camp you continue on the trail meet a minor road go back unto the trail over some stepping stones and turn right at the next minor road you meet. 
hazards on day 2
None mostly done on back roads with little to no traffic.
hazards on day 3

like day 2 but walkers have gotten confused in finding the trail where it leaves minor roads close to dingle.

do we need to book into accommodations in advance or book in as we arrive ?

during the busy months you would be wise to book ahead especially for Camp. We had a gathering event for the Kerry Camino this year and we filled all the accomodation in Camp it would be easy enough to bus back to Tralee from Camp and get a bus back out next day.

there is two of us on a budget coming down from Dublin

there are hostels in Tralee, Annascaul and Dingle but not in Camp.  still the accomodation in Camp is reasonable in price.

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

Hi there

been away from the site for past week so sorry about the delay.

No special date to do the walk. its open all the time!

there are Bed and breakfasts in camp and inch there are hostels in Tralee, Annascaul and Dingle you can get budget accomodation on the route. Also as Tralee is close enough to camp some accomodation will do transfers to the trail between Tralee and Camp I cannot recommend a place as revenue might consider that advertising and we are a non profit.

I hope you decide to do the walk
