Ireland is a country that is even more magical when it is explored by foot. Somehow those lush green hillsides become even brighter when there is no windshield separating you from them, and a friendly pub is even more welcoming when you arrive to it after a day of walking the countryside. At around 120 miles, the Kerry Way is the longest signposted walking route in Ireland. Exploration's Countryside of the Emerald Isle itinerary offers a chance to follow a portion of it on paths that will take you by farms and centuries-old churches and through protected parkland with stunning views of the Atlantic.
You could also choose to instead visit the Killarney National Park, a remarkably rugged corner of Ireland with its forested mountains. Explorations will arrange for a local guide to accompany you as you venture off the beaten path. If you are ready to explore some of the less-visited corners of Ireland, this Explorations itinerary will lead you to them.
