Tomorrow, Tuesday May 8, I begin a 10 day hike of the Kerry Way1. I will be covering around 186km (115 miles) unless I feel able to take on a longer hill section between Waterville and Caherdaniel2 which will add a few more. Although the route traditionally starts in Killarney,3 I will begin my hike in Kenmare4. With one rest day, I should return to my starting point on May 18. I will be staying in B&Bs each night but am carrying everything with me instead of using a luggage transfer service as I have done on previous multi-day hikes.
I am not sure if I will be able to post to this blog as I go but I hope to when I have internet access. I will only have my phone with me so there may be less written content that usual although I will post sketches if I can.
About the route
The Kerry Way was opened in 1989 and is the longest National Waymarked Trail in Ireland.
