What you'll do

I will meet with my hiking group at Applegreen Gas station, Muckross Road, Dromhale, Killarney, Co. Kerry, V93 EFR7 at 10:30.

After I have made sure they have hiking boots or shoes, rain jacket, some food and water for the walk, I will discuss the route of the day with them.

From the meeting point we have to drive 10 minutes to the starting point near Torc Waterfall. Please, bring your own transport.

The walk is on open moorland and tracks suitable for families with children who did previously similar 4 hours walks, with a moderate fitness level. We will climb to Torc Mountain 535 metres over sea level, with a total ascent of 500 metres.

We will start a 4 hours walk at a leisurely pace and I will make sure that everybody is comfortable and happy.

We will stop at regular intervals to enjoy the scenery, to admire the mountains, flora and wildlife, to take pictures, and have some food & water.

During the walk I like to talk with the group about hiking issues related to the area, and sites of interest such as ancient dwelling places, etc.

The walking route will be to Torc Waterfall & Mountain with a great view of Lough Leane, Muckross Lake, Upper Lake, Mangerton, Purple, Shehy and Tomies mountains.

Every one of my guided walks has its own particular places of outstanding beauty. I always aim to make my walks a very special and memorable experience for my clients.

We had a great hike with Cesar up Torc Mountain. The views were spectacular, and Cesar's guidance, pace and sharing of local and historical knowledge was wonderful. We would definitely recommend hiking with Cesar, and wish we had more time to do more hikes in this amazing area. Thanks again Cesar!
