What I will be describing is actually a drive as opposed to a hike. For whatever reason, TA does not have an entry for the Beara Peninsula, although it does for its relatives of the Dingle Peninsula (ring of Dingle) and Iveragh Peninsula (ring of Kerry).

Went for drive on Beara Way. Enjoyed the east side best mostly for the wider roads. Some beautiful scenery and lovely villages.I would caution inn busy tourist time that the road on west side of peninsula is extremely narrow and could be difficult driving for some. Well worth a visit

Wow, just wow, at every turn. We were staying in Kenmare at Rockrest House B&B , (which is probably one of the best we have stayed in), the boys were in bad need of haircuts and they were welcomed into the local barber, Pete Hanley, like old friends and soon had all the locals in the barber at the time...

Wonderful views and very quiet, not touristy - make sure you travel the Healy Pass for the best views.

I have been doing some of the Beara way when down on holidays. and I have some favorite loops walks that i would do, I never get tired of some of them as the scenery keeps changing as we move along. Walks are suitable for moderate and experienced walkers

Hiking this in sections over the past few years....its really good, quite safe and is spectacular when the weather is good. Essential to print out the maps as some bits are tricky even though its well signposted.
