Shehy mountain summit at 762 metres high is located inside Killarney National Park near Purple & Tomies mountains. Remoteness & difficult access make a hard - strenuous experience for people with hill walking experience and good fitness level.
As others adventure activities we are walking off the beaten tracks, and hiking on scenic parts of the mountain that are seldom trod.
The route would involve steep climb & scrambling, but would be completely personalised to the abilities, fitness and equipment of the group to make a truly memorable experience.
There are several routes to reach Shehy mountain summit & explore the whole mountain with wonderful views of Killarney National Park, Mangerton massif & The Reeks District. From Tomies Wood public free car park our route choice would depend on the weather conditions.
Discount for groups:
- One person €80

I had a beautiful hike today on the mountains of Kerry. Our guide/leader was Cesar, who guided a group of 19 up a part of the mountain that is seldom trod. We set of from the Gap of Dunloe and traversed east. We ascended Shehy from the south and had lunch on the "rocks" there. Then onto Purple Mountain and descended back down to the Gap by the little lake of Glas Lough. There were fantastic views, great comradery and a feel good factor among the group, that was safely lead by Cesar. Thank you Cesar.
