Winter Walking in Killarney

Have you spent time in Co. Kerry?

Our Killarney shop on New Street in the heart of town is spoiled for choice with dozens of trails on your doorstep. SO with that in mind, we want to give you 3 trails you can explore while you're in Killarney.

1. Killarney National Park:

Located in County Kerry and covering an area of over 26,000 acres, Killarney
National Park is suitable for avid hikers and casual strollers alike. Whether you
are looking for a short scenic walk or an adventure that takes a few hours there
are a network of trails available that cater to all levels. Within the park you will
find beautiful woodlands, enchanting lakes, and magnificent waterfalls.

2. Glanageenty Woods:

Here you will find three walking trails that have been beautifully developed by the
landowners and opened to the public. The marked trails take you up a steep incline ranging from 4km to 9km in length. Along the routes you will find picnic tables and benches to be able to rest and take in the beauty.

3. The Gap of Dunloe:

Starting at Kate Kearney’s Cottage, you are able to choose between walking
along the road through the valley passing Black Lough or venturing to the top of Strickeen for stunning views. Although both trails are out and back routes 4.4km in length, if you choose to go by the road be mindful of cars, carts, and cyclists enjoying the beautiful surroundings as well.

Before you set off on any adventure, ensure you have the right gear and take
necessary safety measures. We hope you enjoy immersing yourself in the beautiful Irish landscapes that we have on our front doorsteps. A gentle reminder to always show respect for the places you explore by leaving them the same way you discovered them.

As you can see, Killarney and its surroundings in Co. Kerry are a haven if you love walking in stunning scenery. 

Each path offers a unique experience, immersing you in the rich tapestry of Irish landscapes and providing countless opportunities for discovery and reflection. Whether you're a seasoned hiker or just looking for a peaceful stroll, these trails promise memorable experiences amidst some of Ireland's most spectacular scenery.

Remember, the key to a great adventure is preparation. Our Killarney shop on New Street is not just a starting point but a resource for you to gear up and get expert advice. With the right equipment and a respectful approach to the natural environment, your journey through these trails will be as enjoyable as it is safe.
