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

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
