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.

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). Perhaps it is a desire to maintain this as a walker's preserve as opposed... More

We caught glimpse of a sign just when it was time for a little something and followed the arrow deep into the mountains. We were sure we had got it wrong; surely there couldn't be anything so far away, still open for business in September. But then we came across Josies - delightful.

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.
