The drive around is easy and pleasant despite the narrow roads. Luckily it is not as packed as the rings of Dingle and Kerry as the roads are not yet ready for busses. Looking at the ongoing roadworks the Beara team is most likely preparing...More

We went right round the Beara Peninsula on one of the wettest days I have ever seen and it was still absolutely spectacular. Very beautiful on the north coast and atmospheric in the mists. The sun actually came out for half an hour while we...More

Amazing scenery - ocean, mountains, green fields, little villages altogether. Wilder than Ring of Kerry and with much less traffic. Drive clockwise around the Beara Peninsula (Glengariff, Alihies, Kenmare) and take your time to enjoy it (double the time given by Google Maps ;) )....More

Although the weather wasn't as it's best our day was great. We drove from Glengarriff to Allihies, Eyeries, Laurgh and back to Glengarriff. It was amazing! What a view! If you want yo see nature, landscapes as it's best, this is the place. Fantastic!

Ring of Beara is magnificent, especially Healy's Pass from Adrigole to Lauragh. Really enjoyed the Uragh Stone Circle. Short charming walk with picturesque views and loch. Mare's Tail waterfall in Adrigole is beautiful, but don't bother driving down road to get closer- ends in private...More
