At CaminoWays.com we are proud supporters of the Kerry Camino Festival since 2015 and our team takes part in this great event every year.
The Kerry Camino is a fantastic walking trail from the town of Tralee to St James Church in Dingle, in County Kerry, in the South of Ireland. This route follows a section of The Dingle Way, taking a trail believed to have been followed by Saint Brendan, the Navigator, back in 512AD.
The route has also been taken by monks and pilgrims on their way to Dingle where they would then board a boat taking them to Northern Spain to continue their Camino de Santiago journey on foot.
The Kerry Camino is run and maintained by a group of enthusiastic locals, keen to recover the history of this beautiful trail. The team has created a log book where walkers can collect stamps along the way and record their progress,as well as a pilgrim certificate you can obtain in St James Church in Dingle, just like on the Camino de Santiago.
The Kerry Camino Walking Festival takes place every May Bank Holiday Weekend and everybody is welcome! If you haven’t visited this part of Ireland before, this is your chance!
