3 of the Best Ring of Kerry Walks in the Dunkerron Mountains

Embark on an unforgettable adventure with Álaind Walking and conquer the Dunkerron Mountains’ Vandeleur Lynam peaks. Explore stunning scenery, conquer nine impressive peaks, and experience the thrill of completing an epic Ring of Kerry trek.

Mullaghanattin Triangulation Pillar

Mullaghanattin Mountain Horseshoe Walk

The Mullaghanattin and Beann Horseshoe walk is one the most breathtaking experiences you can have in Kerry’s or indeed Ireland’s mountains. As most walkers head straight to the Macgillycuddy Reeks, Mullaghanattin visitors will likely have the mountains to themselves. The horseshoe is a pleasant test rather than an endurance one, leaving you with sufficient reserves to enjoy an evening afterwards in the village of Sneem.

Fermoyle Loop Footbridge Across the Sneem River

The Best Sneem Walks – Fermoyle Loop Trail

This way-marked trail is 14 KM and follows tarred road, farm track and open hillside. Largely due to its 14 km length, it’s graded as a moderate walk but is quite manageable for all who walk on a regular basis. It should take 4.5 hrs.
