About the Walk:
We will follow a track on the north-east, along the Hag's Glen and up the steep Devil's Ladder to the col between Carrauntoohil and Cnoc na Péiste, and then north-west to the summit. An alternative route may be chosen depending on weather and group size.
County Kerry sits in the South West of Ireland and consists of a series of mountainous peninsulas that extend into the Atlantic Ocean. The shoreline is deeply indented by Dingle Bay, Tralee Bay, and the Kenmare River.
Carrantoohill (3,406 ft/1,038 m), in the mountains known as Macgillycuddy's Reeks, is the highest point in Ireland.
Many well-preserved dolmens, stone forts, round towers, castles, and abbeys still stand here today.
Irish Gaelic is spoken by the inhabitants of the Dingle peninsula and the Blasket Islands
