We did a walking holiday with Ireland Walk Hike Bike and the 3 days we did on the Beara Way were terrific. Lovely scenery and stunning coastline.

Leaving Glengarriff, we traveled along the southern side of the Beara Peninsula between Bantry Bay and the Kenmare River. One of the lesser known peninsulas, it it, however, one of the best kept secrets of the southwest of Ireland. We traveled over the Healey Pass,...More

People describe it as rugged and undiscovered, and they are so right!!! About a 2 hour drive from the start of the Beara Peninsula down to the end, though of course you need to add in time for stops, it's a small enough Peninsula to...More

Only logic and intuition could have led me there. In 1970, I figured that my family story could only lead back to the Beara Peninsula. Later research confirmed it. Returning in August 2017, I knew who had been born and lived there and once again...More

If I had to describe the Beara Peninsula in one word, it would be, “Wow!” Quaint little villages, phenomenal scenery, an unhurried atmosphere, and, perhaps best of all, no crowds. We started our journey in Kilgarvan, then headed to Gleninchiquin Park and Waterfall (wonderful), and...More

The walk up is steep and rocky during the early part but you are rewarded with outstanding views across Bantry Bay to the Sheep's Head peninsula and across to the Kerry mountains including the Paps and Mangerton. Well worth it !
