Six easy walks of Killarney and Kenmare
There is no better way to appreciate Kerry's romance and beauty than to leave the car and walk amongst it. The hills and lakes ring out the silence, the freshness of the air is felt and the magic of the ever-changing light observed. Wild deer cross the forest paths and examples of unique Lusitanian flora and fauna can be found in every second hedgerow. History is palpable in fine castles and monasteries, pre-history in the standing stones and passage graves.
