About 11-Day Ring of Kerry Self-Guided Hike

  • 11-Day Ring of Kerry Self-Guided Hike

Tour Code: 12489P9

Duration: 8 days

Kerry’s unique character is drawn from its unequalled diversity of land and seascapes while its offshore islands add another dimension to the beauty of the coastline frequently dotted with castles, forts and watchtowers. Warm summers and mild winters produce many sub-tropical and alpine species of flora while the temperate ocean waters, heated by the Gulf Stream, produce magnificent underwater vistas with whales, dolphins, seals and even turtles being frequent visitors.
