The Kerry Way runs for 126 miles (203 km) through Ireland's most spectacular mountain landscapes, starting and finishing in the town of Killarney. Dramatic peaks and glens, wild moorlands, lakes and windswept passes blend magnificently with extensive coastal panoramas. The complete Way takes nine days, but it can easily be shortened. The walk is rich in archaeology and wildlife, with welcoming accommodation and charming Irish pubs. This guidebook contains all you need to plan and enjoy your holiday: drop-down map showing the whole route in five panels (scale 1:118,000); the Way in sections, with summaries of distance, terrain and where to find food and drink; concise background on geology, scenery and wildlife; a special feature on Carrauntoohil, Ireland's highest peak; planning information for travel by car, train, bus or plane. The book is in full colour throughout, with over 70 photographs, and is printed on waterproof paper.
