Take on Ireland's highest mountain! Ferry Crossing, Campsite Booking, Transport and Guides included.
Very Challenging - You must have climbed Ben Nevis with Bee Adventures before booking. Please speak with us if you are unsure.
Carrauntoohil is the highest mountain in the UK at 1038m. This is a challenging walk but well worth the reward. Ferry Travel and minibus transport to and from the starting point is included and it's fully guided.
We will start from Manchester, drive over to Holyhead in Wales for the Ferry to Dublin, we'll stay 3 nights.
Camping - Included in price. Hot Showers, Toilets, Lounge area and cafe on site.
Refreshed from your nights' sleep we will start the walk from the Cornins Yard up the Devil's ladder route for our hike. The hike to the top should take approximately 4 hours to the highest point in Ireland!!! Following the same path down should take about the same time, then we'll head back to a local Irish pub for food and rest.
The next day to make the most of Ireland the BEE Adventures team will take us around the ring of Kerry to visit some local heritage sites, then back for another night at the campsite.
Day 4 will consist of an early pack-up and a drive back to Dublin for our ferry home, we'll then head back to sunny Manchester and home safely.
