Active Mini-Break

Enjoy a unique, 3 day active mini-break in Kerry. If you only have a few days off together, but still want to get away, then this mini-break is definitely for you. Climbing Carrantuohill is on many a bucket list and on this trip, you will be guided at your own pace through the valleys and ridges of Ireland’s highest mountain. We’ve added something unusual to the mix with this package – Ireland’s only peat baths. This exclusive experience is perfect after a day’s activity and you will be among the first in Ireland to ever try it! We’ve added a few little extras along the way, ensuring you feel relaxed and recharged after your mini-break.

Itinerary

If you arrive early enough at your cosy B&B in Killarney (located within walking distance to town). We do recommend you take a bike trip and start exploring the amazing Killarney National Park. Muckross Abbey, Muckross House & Gardens, Torc Waterfall and Ross Castle are all easily accessible by bike – maps will be provided. A wonderful meal at a renowned restaurant in Killarney including a bottle of wine, will carry you into the evening.

You will have noticed the imposing MacGillycuddy Reeks to the rear of the guesthouse and it is there you will be hiking today. ‘Corrán Tuathail’ holds claim to the highest point in Ireland with a height of 1,038 m (approx. 12 km hike) and you will be lead up the rugged slopes, at a pace suited to you, by your private guide. The ascent will take between 4-6 hours depending on weather conditions and pace. Your experienced guide will consult with you in advance, regarding the terrain conditions as well as the most appropriate gear for your climb. Make sure to take your camera as the views are out of this world.

After all that climbing, a well-deserved respite is in order. It’s off to Ireland’s own outdoor rustic peat baths for a dip in the bog (don’t worry, they are pre-heated). You’re first adventure will be climbing into the huge barrels! This experience will completely turn your perception of a bog on its head. Mud baths are popular around the world and lauded as having fantastic health benefits. Filled with vitamins and nutrient rich acids it also has anti-aging effects ensuring your skin will be aglow with its detoxifying and nourishing effects. Its anti-inflammatory properties are ideal to recover from your long hike through the hills.

In line with Covid-19 protocols, only two people at a time can attend ensuring you will have the whole experience to yourselves!

On your way back home, stop in at the Killarney Brewing Company and pick up your take-away gourmet pizza & pint, all made right there. If you would like to stay for a few more, it’s only a short walk to your B&B or alternatively, grab a few more locally brewed beers to go!

Relax into the day with a luxurious breakfast before heading into Killarney town for a browse around the town. Any last minute shopping can be done today as the majority of shops remain open, even on Sundays. J.M. Reidy’s on Main Street take walk-ins only for lunch and their outdoor seating area is great on a sunny (or any weather) day. Its old world character will charm you to come back again.
