Castlegregory To Tralee Walk

Search County Kerry

A 19 miles (30Km) stroll along Tralee Bay back to the Town of Tralee.

From Castlegregory you can take the main R560 road or the quieter College Street, which you will find in the centre of the village. 

It is long and straight but closer to the coast with more views of Tralee Bay and taking you to the small village of Aughacasla on the R560. All you will find there is a petrol station however.

From now on unfortunately it is a walk all along the main road, which fortunately is always fairly quiet. You will by-pass the village of Camp passing the Railway Bar which is always very interesting and worth popping into for a quick bit of refreshment (You can purchase Horse Brasses from the bar).

Leaving the Railway Bar the walk can be quite exposed due to the wind factor. This is not the most exciting of the walks but Blennerville and the vibrant Town of Tralee is not too far away.

When you reach Blennerville have a look at the famous windmill, also the Jenny Johnston, the famine ship that took thousands of immigrants to the USA was built and sailed here. Unfortunately she is now moored on the Liffey in Dublin.

Take the canal path from here, about 2km, left at the island at the bottom and into Tralee. Take off your boots, put your feet up and have a sip of the Black Stuff.
