Walking in the beaufort Area

The Kerry Way

The Kerry Way covers a wide variety of terrain, from the firm footing of tarmac roads to more rugged sections out on wild mountainous countryside. The trail follows small roads commonly known to the Irish as 'boreens', long-abandoned coach roads and mass paths that are now overgrown with grass but nonetheless quite firm underfoot. There are also sections that cross through forestry, national parks and farmland which can get quite boggy in places.
