About this book

The Iveragh Peninsula, the largest in southwest Ireland, stretches from Killarney to Bolus Head and attracts thousands of visitors annually. The Ring of Kerry coastal road winds along its fringes and sandstone peaks soar high above. It is a landscape of raw and stunning beauty from the lakes that fill the corries to the spectacular cliff scenery along its coast. There is no better way to explore this landscape than on foot. Killarney to Valentia Island helps you do just that with routes ranging from a few hours to full-day walks. Explore Valentia Island, the majestic MacGillycuddy's Reeks and sections of The Kerry Way. Go off the beaten track and explore the coast, hills and woodlands from Killarney to Cahersiveen to Kenmare. Each route is prefaced with a reference summary and illustrated with maps and photographs. Route descriptions include GPS coordinates, navigation guidance, access notes and short variations. There is also material on the fauna, flora, folklore, history, geology and place names of each area.
