easy for most of the trail. some uneven rocky bits particularly at the beginning of the Barnahulla church to torc section. lots of up and down. beautiful day, we did the two car method, drove to killarney left one car there, then on to kenmare and walked from there. needed lots of water to drink along the way, took just under 5 hours.

Stunning views from the top of the Ridge of Capard, the boardwalk makes the walk so much easier on our decent we took the trial down to Glenbarrow waterfall. Approximately a 10km loop in total. We met no one along the route so it’s really peaceful and quiet

Awesome trek. Beautiful and challenging. Went all the way to Cahirseveen. Then over to Portmagee to take the boat to Skellig Micheal where the hike to the top was a highlight of the journey. Will remember this always
