The Ring of Beara is a must if you are visiting West Cork and unfortunately because of time restraints we probably didn't have enough time to do it justice. However in the time we did have we were treated to some beautiful scenery and the rock formations obviously formed many millions of years ago were very impressive. There are some... More

Cousins have taken us on this twice. This would be similar to the Ring of Kerry if you are in this area and don't want to drive to Kerry. The views are in all of Castletownbere are amazing, lush green hills and ocean just about everywhere. Remember to drive on the LEFT.

I was only down this way for a few days and having driven the Ring of Kerry many times I decided to give the Ring of Beara a go, coming as I was from Tralee it is a little further but well worth it, unfortunately it rained a fair bit but luckily when I would stop a little pocket of... More

We loved the Ring of Beara as there is so much to see and do and is less busy than the Dingle or Iveragh Peninsulas! Star attractions are the achaaelogical sites of Katherine point graveyard, the Hag of Beara and the Stone Circles in Ardgroom and Deereentaggart. Visits to the off shore islands of Dursey and Bere are imperatives. We... More

This is my second time traveling around the Beara Peninsula and it is always stunning! There's not much more to say than, GO!!! You will not be disappointed at the natural beauty and may have to drag yourself away. I know I always have to!

We drove the WAW, for eight days. For us this is one of the better drives as there is less coaches, many places to stop and appreciate the amazing scenery, still the tight windy roads we have come to love along the way. We found having a small nippy car made the drive more enjoyable.

We decided to do the Beara Way, as a lot less traffic and we where able to stop more often for pictures. Not much to dislike. Outstanding views of the area at pretty much all times. Make this part of your trip.
