My husband and I walked the Beara Way at the end of Sept. It was quite a different experience than I had expected. There were good sized hills every day. Because there had been so much recent rain, it was very wet and boggy hiking....More

Lots of beautiful sights here. I love this area. Watch out for the sheep on the road. They don't seem to watch out for cars. And if you hit one you have to buy it!

We walked a few hours on the Beara way walk and back one day. The scenery is so beautiful, I could go on forever and forever. Don't forget to bring a small lunchpack and proper shoes.

Spent a wonderful day exploring the Beara peninsula. The landscape is simply stunning. My favorite part of our trip to Ireland!

Beautiful island to explore away from the tourist and tour buses. Cute towns to stop and explore. So much better than Ring of Kerry.

Good weather , though a little tricky getting oriented on the map. Off road and at the higher levels the trail was very wet, boots needed. No one else out , beautiful silent valleys and invigorating vistas over mountains lakes and the sea

We stayed in Kenmare and liked it. But you need to either have a car or change hotels if you're walking far. Don't know about public transport. We took a bus from Killarney to Kenmare.
