We spent a day driving around the Beara Peninsula. It rained in the morning, but we managed to trek out to see the Ardgroom Stone Circle in blustery weather. It was a very memorable experience. Then we drove out to Kilcatherine Point for a stunning view of the Kerry Peninsula across the bay. The colorful tidy town of Eyeries was... More

Staring at Glengarrif we drove as far as Dursy Cable Car then onto Lauragh . Lots of pleasant stopping points with rewarding views. As with all Irish country roads 'Take Care'

Simply beautiful nothingness. It is easy to see why my ancestors had to leave for America... You either fish or farm and the land looks like you can only grow rocks. Thank God for sheep. The natural beauty of the land is the reward for visiting,

We are frequent visitors to Ireland and have visited every accessible piece of coastline and the part we come back to time and again is the Ring of Beara. Our favourite piece is from Ardgroom (where there is a very special prehistoric circle to see, but which takes a lot of finding) to Allihies. The first part from Ardgroom is... More

We did a portion of the Kerry Way, where it is advised that a full day is required, and that there are many tourists to contend with. The Beara Way is smaller, much less frequented, and probably requires about 4-5 hours to cover, but no less stunning or beautiful. The relative seclusion adds to the character and the experience -...

We hiked from Kenmare to Castletownbere. Although the trails are well marked it is not a groomed track as such. The views are breath taking in every direction. Water-proof shoes are a must. Hiking poles are helpful. Peaceful and secluded.

We drove the ring of Beara the day after we drove the ring of Kerry. And what a difference. No tour buses, no towns where all the tourists are packed together, no crowd in the parking lot of a viewing point. Just us, a local farmer and some cows. We drove the ring counterclockwise opposite off what most recommend. The... More

The wild Atlantic way along the beara peninsula is undoubtedly one of the best of its type . The beara way is an amazing walk along the mighty North Atlantic. All the way in car or on foot you come across amazing breathtaking views if both the ocean bag the rugged mountains .
