The Killarney Mountain festival takes place in the stunningly picturesque town of Killarney with endless walking and trekking options to suit all levels and all practically on your doorstep.

There are also talks from the likes of Scottish wilderness hiker Cameron McNeish and surfer and environmentalist Cal Major, as well as adventures into the mountains themselves.
