Killarney Walking Tours
Guided Walks in the Killarney National Park, Killarney Lakes and the MacGillycuddy Reeks, Irelands Largest and Highest Mountain Range.
Great relaxing walks where the emphasis is on fun and relaxation. May to October – No Booking; November to April – Booking required. We meet every morning at the same time and place for the two hour walk. Beautiful scenery, mountains, lakes and woods; some by old landlord houses with lovely gardens. We walk through woodland, parkland, along the lake shore and the river walk. In fact just about wherever you and your feet want to go!!
Visit ancient places like the old copper mines (dating back 4000 years), 6th century monastery ruins on Innisfallen Island or the 15th Century Ross Castle. See where Brother Cudda slept for 200 years, where Queen Victoria visited in 1861 and where President De Gaulle of France stayed in 1969. Also, in the same year, where part of the award winning Ryan’s Daughter (starring Robert Mitchum) was filmed.
See our native red deer or the Japanese Sika introduced here in the mid 19th Century. Unusal trees here are the arbutus (Strawberry Tree) fuscia and Monte Rey Pines. You might see the rare Kerry cow on your walk (brought to Ireland by the Celts). In season, you will also see abundant local flora including wild mint, garlic and myrtle.
A WALK FOR EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR!!!
Take a nice relaxing walk with your local guide, and get a ‘blas’ or taste of Killarney’s beautiful National Park. Our walks would be of interest to those who love good scenery; lakes, rivers, mountains and woods.
Tours are given in English by your local guide Richard Clancy (who also speaks Irish, some Spanish, Italian, German). French and other language guides available on request.
2 Hour Walk – 12 Euro
Half Day Walk – 30 – 36 Euro

I spent a two day break in Killarney this year. I was travelling alone and found my short break to be most therapeutic. I was a bit hesitant to go on the guided walk at first, as I was alone. I must say though, with an expert guide and a lovely walk in Killarney National Park, I felt completely invigorated and slept like a baby that night. I would strongly recommend anyone visiting Killarney National Park to take the guided walk as one learns the history behind the beauty and Richard Clancy who took me around has a most pleasant manner and as an added bonus that he can speak some Italian as well as some Spanish and fluent in Irish.”

We did a walk that started at Ross Castle and he brought us to the most beautiful places at the lake. He guided us to the quietest and nicest spots, which we would never have found ourselves. If you are in Killarney be sure that you take in this walk.”
