The Kerry Camino is a walk modelled on the Camino de Santiago in Northern Spain and follows a three day walking route from Tralee to Dingle along the spine of the Dingle Peninsula which has some of the most dramatic scenery and coastline in Ireland.
St James Church in Dingle is believed to have been built by Spaniards to honour St James and the town was a popular departure point for pilgrims of old heading to Santiago de Compostela.
Beaumont Hospital Foundation's first fundraising trip on the Kerry Camino takes place from 21st to 25th Sept through the countryside which National Geographic has called "the most beautiful place on Earth".
