What You’ll Experience on this trail around Derrynane
This wonderful loop walk begins and ends in the village of Caherdaniel. Much quieter in contrast to Derrynane beach, it’s a timeless walk through the grounds of the Liberator Daniel O’Connell’s Home. It offers a wonderful mix of quiet green lanes, stunning sea views, native woodland, white sandy beach and Wild Atlantic shoreline.
Reaching a maximum height of 150 metres, near where the Kerry Way joins the Mass Path, this relatively low level walk still rewards you with fabulous panoramic sea views. As you begin the descent from this height, the spectacular views continue until you reach the shores of Derrynane Harbour and beach. After a visit to Abbey Island, a swim at Derrynane with its Blue Flag status is a wonderful experience.
If you are interested in doing this as a guided walk, we’d love to hear from you.
