The Irish Coast to Coast walk comes with a few variables, mainly at the end, but essentially follows five long distance paths across Ireland from Dublin to the South West corner, either finishing on the Beara Way or just off the Kerry Way at Portmagee.
It’s part of the European walking route number E8 and at approximately 620km (386 miles) this is one long trail but one of the best things about the Irish part is that it’s easy to do in sections. Bus and train services make it easy to get around so it’s also one of the most convenient and you can do certain trails over a long weekend or longer sections over a week.
It’s made up of five routes, Wicklow, South Leinster, East Munster, Blackwater and Kerry taking a slight diversion off the Kerry to finish in Portmagee.*
As we mentioned it’s part of the European walking route E8 which heads from the south west of Ireland to Istanbul so once you’ve finished with Ireland there are only another 3,770km to go!

*Some people choose to take the Beara Way instead of the Kerry, remaining faithful to the E8 route.
