Ireland Self Guided Package – Irish Caminos Accommodation – 4 Days
Price: €395 (excluding flights)
4 DAY KERRY CAMINO (SELF GUIDED)
CAMP – DINGLE
The Kerry Camino is a 57km walking trail from Tralee to Dingle in the wonderful south west of Ireland. This 4 day trip shortens this route to a 2 day walking trip from Camp to Dingle (39kms) and is ideal for those short on time or who want a taste of the Kerry Camino experience. This trail also forms part of the 179km Dingle Way; a circular route of the Dingle Peninsula which starts and finishes in Tralee, the capital of Kerry.
This popular and well signposted trail offers a variety of landscapes from walking in the foothills of Slieve Mish to the tranquil setting of pastoral farmland, passing through many picturesque villages and the remote golden sands of Inch beach. This trail is steeped in history with many archeological sites along the way and references to the local Antarctic explorer Tom Crean.
This relatively flat trail is regarded as easy to moderate in difficulty ranging from sea level to 200m – doable for all levels of walkers with prior preparation and determination! This trip is ideal for those who are short on time or just want to have a taste of the Kerry Camino.
As part of this trip, you’ll find 3 nights in comfortable locally-owned 3&4 star B&Bs/Guesthouses with breakfasts and luggage transport between accommodation. Around-the-clock emergency assistance is also included which adds confidence to the detailed walking notes that cover landmarks, distances and things to see over the course of your walk.
Alongside the sense of achievement and numerous chances to taste the local Irish food and experience the traditional Irish culture, this walking trip entitles you to receive a Celtic Camino Compostela from the Camino Society of Ireland.
Link to the Camino de Santiago in Spain
St. James Church in Dingle was the starting point for medieval pilgrims before they set sail from Dingle Port to the ports of A Coruña and Ferrol in northwest Spain where they continued on the English Way to Santiago de Compostela. These Irish pilgrims arrived to A Coruña in English merchant ships after a stop over in Plymouth or Bristol, the trading ports that connected with today’s northwestern Spain. For this reason, this Camino route would be known as the English Way, although it was travelled by people not only from England but also from Ireland and Scandinavian countries.
To recognise this tradition, the Cathedral of Santiago in Spain will grant a Camino de Santiago Compostela to pilgrims who have completed a certified 25km in Ireland plus 75km of the English Way. This provides a great opportunity to walk part of the Camino at home as well as in Spain.
