  • Awesome walk in the Killarney national park 4 to 5 kms (depends on where u park) about half on the walking trail leaving from the parking lot and half on climb : arranged stones and wooden planks Real worth the effort , and awesome view on the way and up there Watch the weather before, no shelter on the way Wear decent walking shoes and bring some water Visit on the 25th of February so not too many people U can t miss the climb of you don’t miss the panel 😁 Free 👍🏻
