This is a nice easy hike that is beautiful and easy on the foot. It's not a very busy route, which makes it even better. The views at the top are incredible! Be sure to bring proper footwear as this trail can get muddy after the rain.

HikingGreat!

Lovely place to begin hiking and the outdoors in Kerry. Relatively easy and accessible trail for all ages with beautiful views throughout! By twist of fate bumped into a local expert and absolute gentleman Con Morriarty who advised this walk amongst many others cos his grandfather helped cut the trails out something like 70years ago! Thank you Con

Just loved running this trail. Did it twice in a week when on a few days hols in Kerry. Amazing views that make you stop to look. On my days, the wind was unkind and very windy

Just out for a stroll and saw the path. First Irish Peak! Path was clear, easy to follow, and we were quick to reach the top. Nice views, even with the overcast skies. Plenty of sheep scattering in front of us; the deer stood still for photos. Beautiful flowers on the Mountain Ash and purple flowers on other bushes. Overall, a good wake up from driving all day.

Lovely trail and easy to follow. The path is well laid out and its not too strenous if you take your time so great for beginners. Gets pretty windy at the top though, so you do need to watch your step on the last climb up to the top. Waterproof boots are a must. Great views on the way up and even better from the top!

Fantastic walk, weather was not in our favor so we did not have the view from the top. However , very steady incline and you would not need to be an experiment climber/hiker as the path is easily followed . Well worth doing .

Wonderful hike up with stunning views of the landscape. Bring waterproof footwear. Good challenge for kids - some fun places to find critters, sheep, skip over water and a great sense of achievement when done.

Amazing views from the top. Steady upwards drag with a bit of a “hike” at the very last part. So uncrowded it’s hard to believe.

It’s a nice easy hike that is beautiful & easy on the foot. Not a very busy route at all, which makes it even better. The views are unreal at the top!
