Events
Steeped in history and full of unique character whether your interest is in history, culture, wildlife or simply walking and indulging in the breath-taking scenery, The Killarney Walking Festival has it all. A two day walking programme is offered with hikes, treks and hill walks to suit all interests and fitness abilities.

An experience like no other, for some of the best hikes, trails and mountain walks in the country look no further than Killarney National Park one of Ireland’s premier tourist attractions with over 1.5 million visitors annually.

Boasting three world famous lakes, the park today covers an area of over 26,000 acres with dramatic landscapes, rivers teaming with life, mountains, valleys and forests. Fifteen of Ireland’s twenty highest peaks can be found in Kerry and the McGuillycuddy Reeks, on Killarney’s doorstep, are the largest mountain range in Ireland.

So if you fancy an active weekend out and about in the hills and mountains of Kerry enjoying the beautiful scenery, The Killarney Walking Festival is the perfect opportunity!
