Tips

Spectacular way-marked coastal walk in Dun Chaoin, West Kerry, Ireland. This is one of Ireland's National Looped Walks. This looped walk starts and finishes in the Blasket Centre car park in Dun Chaoin. It offers beautiful Atlantic views of the Blaskets and surrounding areas. It is a moderate walk suitable to people of varying fitness levels and will take between one hour and one hour and a half. The initial part is uphill but is easy enough after that. There are about half a dozen stiles to climb. The final bit is along a cliff so you need to be attentive if walking with young children.

Wear good foot gear and bring rain gear as the weather changes quickly and you can be caught out with little or no shelter.
