The first part of this was beautiful but it’s through a lot of pastures and we had to hike through a lot of muck. We were lucky that it had been dry for a few days, this hike would be miserable in the rain. We took a wrong turn at the top of the second hill, instead of turning left and going along the ridge, we ended up on the “alternate route” to Caherdaniel, so we had about 4 miles of road walking to get back on track (which was boring!).

Great views at the top!! Best to follow the trail in the direction advertised, as the rocks could be very slippery/dangerous if going down the wrong direction.

Absolutely gorgeous views all around on a clear day. Hike in isn’t too bad. Well trafficked with a sturdy rock path and not a lot of slipping rocks or shale when dry-some uneven footing, though. Definitely recommend and will do again in the future. Saw quite a few red deer with babies. The railroad ties helped keep you off the soft and wet ground which was really nice.

Definitely get in early- heavily trafficked to falls then tourists thin out after. Beautiful area.

This is a challenging section of the Kerry Way and about 4 miles longer than the guide book. It’s very muddy and rocky. This route takes you to Blackstone House via the road for the last 4 miles. We skipped the road and too the old Kerry Way though the countryside which ultimately didn’t save us any time. Beautiful views!

Loved this bit. Wide open mood with lots of ancient rock markers on the trail. Great views and some historical bits at the end.

Easy walk. No real strenuous bits.

Hiking on the edge of difficult, no trails or trails. Difficult terrain, alternation of rock and very wet grass. Passage over the barbed wire. You have to be well equipped. Fortunately I had the route tracking. Otherwise beautiful to do, 360 view up and wonderful scenery.

Good trail conditions on a sunny day, the route was easy to follow. hikers should be aware that it a one way counterclockwise and I think that the steps could be difficult downwards if wet. Definitely good getting the heart rate up.

Great scramble for those who likes the challenge, but must never underestimate the mountain.

Beautiful views, easy hike. We were glad to be wearing sturdy boots with the muddy second half. Took us an hour and a half but we did stop plenty for pictures. Luckily missed the rain!

Easy/moderate and Relatively quick. Nice variety of terrain and views. Tourists thin out after 500 meters by the Torc falls then you have the trail to yourself. I was without a car so took the red bus in from Killarney for €6 then walked back. Way cheaper then a taxi.

Really lovely trek. The railroad ties keep you above the boggy bits which was appreciated. Saw a few of the legendary deer, they seem very accustomed to people and will stick around to be watched. Stunning view. Coming down wasn’t difficult, lots of uneven rocks made me slow down though. If you are. If you are not sure footed, bring hiking poles.

Great View of Blaskets and Skelligs from the most Western Hill in Europe...

The hike up Torc mountain is absolutely incredible! We enjoyed the different terrain and the beautiful wandering creek and short waterfalls. The hike is a bit steep with slick areas of rock and mud, however the railroad ties wrapped in mesh wire made it easy to stay on the trail. The day we hiked the winds were extremely high so we weren't able to stay long at the summit but we could see all of Kilarney and the surrounding park! I highly suggest doing this hike to get out of the city and out into the wild!
