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.

I am a regular traveler in Ireland and I ALWAYS make it a point to dine at Josie's. I often drag friends along, claiming that it is "the most beautiful spot in Ireland." None I have dragged along have disagreed. You will not regret this journey out the Beara Peninsula. And if you like to hike, you might ask for... More

We went on this route on the advice of a friend and he was right all the way. The views are stunning and to be honest we don't appreciate this sort of thing in our little country. On a clear day and with a bit of sunshine (something we don't seem to get a lot of) you can see for... More

Easily equal to the ring of Kerry and Dingle peninsula. Seems to be more favoured by cyclists so be careful. There is a mind-blowing scenic road that crosses the peninsula about halfway down at Adrigole. If you have time dont miss it.
