Leaving Annascaul at 09:00 we drive via Molly Darcy’s, Killarney and then on to Sneem. A bus will pick us up in Sneem and take us to our starting point near the Blind Piper in Caherdaniel.
Our walk begins with a gentle slope upwards in a North Easterly direction for 1.75 miles tll we come to a junction in the Kerry Way. The left fork leads back inland to Waterville but we will take the right fork which is parallel to the coastline far below.
We pass Staigue fort but it is a little far from our track to pay it a visit. We then come to two 600 foot hills and after that there is an easy descent to the Ring of Kerry road int Sneem.
