The Knocknadobar to Kells Village Ridge Walk is a moderate 4.5 hour (10.5 km) walking route to the peak of Knocknadobar Mountain (690m) near the town of Cahersiveen, Co. Kerry in the south west of Ireland. The hiking trail follows the ancient 'stations of the cross' pilgrim route with stunning views from the top alongside the Altar before travelling across the ridge and desending down to the picture perfect Kells Bay. Before Christinanity arrived in Ireland, Knocknadobar was an important mountain in Pagan Ireland.

Knocknadobar, in Irish: Cnoc na dTobar, meaning "mountain of the wells" is one of the main mountains of the Iveragh Peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland. The cross beside the altar was erected in June 1884.
