Stage 4 of The Kerry Way long distance walking route is from Glenbeigh to Cahersiveen, county Kerry in the west of Ireland. This is a strenuous 7 to 10 hour (28 km) walking route along quiet back roads and gentle ascents with stunning views of Dingle Bay and Peninsula from mountain stage on the slopes on Drung Hill (640m), through woodland and finishing on quiet county roads to Cahersiveen.  This hike can be done in either direction and can be broken into shorter walks to make it easier.

The Kerry Way is a long distance walking trail in County Kerry, Ireland and the longest of Irelands National Waymarked Trails at approximately 215 km (134 miles) long. The walking route officially begins and ends in Killarney but you can join the trail at any number of points along its length.  The Kerry Way takes in the entire Iveragh Peninsula in an anti clockwise loop and is the walking alternative to the world famous Ring of Kerry scenic drive which follows a similar route.

Typically the entire route is broken down into 9 key stages of approximate equal length or duration. We have also broken some of these longer stages into smallers part to allow everyone irrespective of fitness or time available to experience one of the best and varied walks in Ireland.
