I can't help you with specifics on the trail in Kilarney. That being said, I've read a number of backpack trip planning articles and they said to plan on 3km per hour of travel over varied terrain. Obviously this averages out over a long distance. So expect to go slower on more challenging sections with lots of hill climbing, and faster on flatter easier sections of the trail.
Have fun on your trip.
