Guided walk of the Kerry Camino on the May bank holiday 2018

Group of walkers waiting to start the 2016 Guided walk in St. John's parish Church in Castle Street, Tralee.

A 3 day guided walk of the Kerry Camino will begin on Friday 4th of  May. There is an orientation meeting the night before.   The first day’s walk is from Tralee to Camp. The second day takes us from Camp to Annascaul via inch beachand finally on the third day we walk from Annascaul to Dingle.

Booking

Book tickets for this event online at this website.  We have sold out the last number of years so booking early is advised.  If you wish to stay overnight in Camp you should book your accommodation early as it fills up fast. We arrange transport back to Tralee each day of the walk.

Gear

Your gear list for the walk:

  • hiking boots or trail shoes.
  • Rain gear, woolly hat, gloves.
  • Sun hat sun screen.
  • Water and food for the day.
  • Backpack

Boots are probably best for the first day as most of the walking takes place on a mountain side trail which can get very wet. The second day takes place on old roads with some rough trails and boreens. The third day of the walk  is half minor roads and half rough trail. you boots should be well broken in before you set off on a long walk like this.

I know it is well known but just to reiterate it, do not wear denim jeans on the walk, they tend to chafe which sounds uncomfortable but in fact is hellishly painful especially the second day. Breathable fabric tee shirts can be purchased online cheaply or in supermarkets. Avoid cotton.
