Tralee - Dingle : Kerry Camino  


                                                                          Tralee - Dingle : Kerry Camino


  The Camino de Santiago (the Way of St. James) is a large network of ancient pilgrim routes stretching across Europe and finishing at the tomb of St. James in Santiago de Compostela, where the remains, or relics, of St. James (Santiago in Spanish), are said to be buried.


  The 57 km (35 miles) long Kerry Camino is part of this network and an official pilgrim route as listed by the Camino Society Ireland. The walk, which starts at St. John’s Church in Tralee, is believed to have been taken by pilgrims on their way to St. James’ Church, in Dingle, which was originally built by Spanish merchants and dedicated to St. James of Santiago de Compostela. For this reason, Dingle was a famous departure point for Irish pilgrims setting sail for Northern Spain on their way to the tomb of the saint.


  For the most part, the Kerry Camino follows the official route of the Dingle Way (Slí Chorca Dhuibhne in Gaelic), a 179 km (112 miles) long National Waymarked Trail around the Dingle Peninsula. The route passes along rugged mountain sides, through coastal scenery and through towns and villages. Walkers can collect stamps along the Kerry Camino in a Pilgrim Logbook which allows them to collect a certificate of completion in Dingle.


  - Tralee – Camp: A gentle canal towpath leads away from Tralee. This is quickly followed by a rugged mountain path across the slopes of Slieve Mish.

- Camp – Annascaul: This section consists of minor roads across the top of the peninsula, with a mixture of grassy tracks and paths.

- Annascaul – Dingle: Here you will follow quiet country roads that run next to the coast. You will also traverse hillside paths through farmland.
