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

This road trip has wonderful views and quaint rural villages. The road was windy and slow but very little traffic. It was well worth the few hours drive and not have the tourists.

This Ring of Beara/Beara peninsula is just as scenic as the nearby Ring of Kerry, offering wonderful vistas of the sea, Bere Island, Dursey Island with quaint towns and villages. Castletownbere is like Dingle, a busy tourist town. Allihies & Eyeries are colourful villages nestled in the the mountainside. The Healy pass is a mountain drive that is breathtaking. The... More

This was the highlight of our trip to Ireland. We rented a bus for our family which was well worth the extremely reasonable price as the roads are so narrow! The bus driver was fantastic as stopped at all the most beautiful points. Frankly, I have never seen so much beauty and it truly represented the Ireland in our mind... More

This is a magnificent drive. It's best to go on a day when there is no fog! Rain is OK and sunshine is marvellous. There is something for everyone, just take your time!
