Cosán Na Naomh, Co. Kerry
Guided 18km walk to celebrate Pilgrim Paths Week.

The ancient pilgrim path of Cosán na Naomh takes an 18km (11 miles) route from Ventry Strand to the foot of Brandon Mountain in Co. Kerry.

The tradition of pilgrimage to Brandon Mountain dates back to the earliest times, before the pagan deity Crom Dubh was reputedly ousted from the mountain by the great St Brendan the Navigator (d. 577 or 583). The medieval Christian pilgrimage was probably adapted by the Church from a pagan celebration. The route follows the Saints’ Road from Ventry Strand to the grotto at the foot of Brandon Mountain and winds its way among the fuchsia-hedged fields between the sea and the mountain.
