Beautiful countryside in the Ring of Beara. Be sure to cross Healy Pass. Watch out for sheep and have your camera ready!

Oh my! If the ring of Kerry is excellent (which it is), then Beara knocks spots off it! Travel clockwise: the first 15 kilometres are tame-ish, narrow roads through forest and rhodedendron glades and boggy lowland. After this the landscape opens into magnificent post-glacial uplands and sublime coasts. Small, well-kept villages full of wonderful colour-washed houses, and all the time... More

Spent a week in southern Ireland on the Sheeps head peninsula, the Beara way is the next peninsula and is equally as impressive, with spectacular views. Lots of view points to stop at if your driving, can be a bit daunting driving as the roads are very high and narrow.

We did this trip as part of a coach tour and it was well worth it for the beautiful views of the Irish countyside. The roads are a bit tight in places but that all adds to the excitement as the coach tried to pass other velicles

The Beara Penninsula is still unspoiled, with no large tour buses. It is rugged and beautiful. Outstanding views, whether traveling by road or by trail.

Did the majority of this as a cycle. The views are great and as good as if not better than the Ring of Kerry - that's saying a lot from a Kerryman! Weather is a huge factor - when sun is out & sky is clear then good to go.

The Beara way is fun to drive and offers great spectacular views on the way around the peninsula! The drive is most of the way a small road but some part of the Beara way is more challenging. The road gets very narrow, bumpy and has a lot of bends and turns. Also expect sheeps, dogs or cattle or walkers... More
