Council to propose creation of new looped walk off Wild Atlantic Way in North Kerry

Kerry County Council is to propose the creation of a new looped walk off the Wild Atlantic Way.

The local authority was responding to a query from Sinn Féin Cllr Robert Beasley about developing a circle of North Kerry, and having the route mapped out in brochures in conjunction with Fáilte Ireland.

This new looped walk would come from Tarbert into Ballylongford, Asdee, and Ballybunion, onto Ballyduff, Causeway, and Ballyheigue including Ardfert, Tralee, and out by Listowel.

Kerry County Council says this project would greatly help to promote North Kerry as a tourism destination, showcasing the beaches, cliffs, walks, activities, heritage and cultural attractions, and also its many towns, villages, and communities.

A review of the Wild Atlantic Way programme is due to be carried out by Fáilte Ireland later this year, and as part of this, the development of loops off the Wild Atlantic Way will also be considered.

Kerry County Council says its Tourism Unit will be proposing this North Kerry project to Fáilte Ireland as an attractive addition and destination for inclusion in their extended Wild Atlantic Way Development Programme.
