Glenteenassig Woods is located just off the Tralee to Dingle road at Castlegregory. It offers spectacular walking surrounded by lakes and Annascaul Mountain.

There is a boardwalk around the upper lake and some picnic benches where you can sit and enjoy the scenery on warmer days.

#2. Muckross House and Gardens

 Muckross House & Gardens in Killarney has lovely easy walks from the house down to the Killarney Lake, ideal for smallies and the paths are buggy-friendly. My daughters loved running in and around the rhododendron bushes when they were younger! Combine a walk with lunch in the lovely cafe.

For a longer walk head from the House to Torc Waterfall, a trail which consists of paved and clay walkways. The loop is approximately 4km and is signposted off the main Muckross Lake Loop walk. Be sure to look out for the deer and the squirrels, who roam freely in the park. 

#3. Inch Beach

Inch Beach Kerry Winter walks for families

Despite its name, Inch beach is approximately 6.5km long. With outstanding views over Dingle Bay and is the perfect place for a walk (or a run!) along the sands and you don’t have to go the full length of the beach!
