The Beara Way offers a wonderful drive with opportunities to stop and view gorgeous vistas and to wander through quaint towns. This is Ireland at its most beautiful.

You can nearly imagine all of Ireland being condensed into the Beara Way, the variety of terrain, flora and fauna, and spectacular views shows more of the country than I've ever seen before. I could go on for pages about the different parts but even if you just pick a short trek you'll be amazed, guaranteed!

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
