Eleven years ago I visited Ireland for the first time and vowed I would return for a more in-depth exploration of its landscape, history, people and culture.  At that time I did not even consider that I might enjoy that exploration on foot! I decided to walk three well-known Irish hikes: the Wicklow Way, the Kerry Way and the Dingle Way. Four of us were involved in this adventure: two to walk the entire way (Sarah Allday and me), one to occasionally walk (Frankie Parker) and my mom, June Funk, who traveled independently, meeting us at each B&B to visit and explore the area.

When planning these walks, I used three very helpful websites which listed B&Bs, maps, mileage, etc., everything necessary to arrange this Irish adventure.  These sites were: www.wicklowway.com, www.kerryway.com and www.dingleway.com.
