The Kerry Camino Festival is back for 2019. Each year this lively festival attracts Camino fans for a three-day walk through beautiful Kerry. Whether you’re yet to do your first Camino or you’ve just completed your tenth, it doesn’t matter. Lace up your boots and get ready to meet a bunch of friendly walking enthusiasts! Join the CaminoWays.com team as we support the Kerry Camino team in Tralee hosting this wonderful short walking festival.
This annual festival takes place over the may bank holiday weekend. This year that’s Friday, May 3rd – Sunday, May 5th. Starting in the charming town of Tralee the Kerry Camino route follows the footsteps of Saint Brendan, the Navigator. This trail has been walked by monks and pilgrims on their way to Dingle.
The Kerry Camino is run by a group of enthusiastic locals, keen to recover the history of the trail and celebrate the close links between the region and the Camino de Santiago in Spain. Walkers can collect stamps along the way on the Kerry Camino log book and record their progress. Once you finish the walk you will receive your certificate of completion at St. James’s Church in Dingle.
In 2019 the Kerry Camino Festival takes place from Thursday 2nd May to Sunday 5th May and everybody is welcome! If you haven’t visited this part of Ireland before, this is your chance!
