We are planning to walk the Kerry Way in September 2016.  Can anyone comment on whether it really matters if you walk the route counter clockwise or clockwise?  Thank you.  Lisa and Dennis

Sorry to have missed this interesting question. Having walked some but not all of it, I'd say that it doesn't really matter, which is just as well because you have probably made your plans by now. The reason most people go anti-clockwise is so they complete the shorter, easier days first. With a circuit walk, the prevailing wind isn't a consideration, but for many (most?) walkers Sneem to Kenmare (at 30 km/19 miles) is at the upper limit of what they can manage in a day, and Kenmare to Killarney contains a fair amount of repetition of the outward journey. I suspect that many people with limited time actually curtail the walk at Sneem and take a bus home!
