We took a whole day following the peninsula route. It was a very enjoyable route with many lovely villages. Beautiful scenery and views, some breathtaking... Don't miss it. Also make sure you go through the Healy Pass, which is NOT part of the Beara route

Beautiful walk way through the mountains of the Beara peninsula. It's a very long walk, we only covered a short distance starting from Glengarriff. It's steep at times and rocky so you should be well prepared with the right set of shoes. Once you reached the top of the walk way you're rewarded with a breathtaking view.

Beautiful landscape, amazing views. Enjoyed our drive on the ring of beara. It's less crowded than the ring of Kerry. You should at least take half a drive the drive the ring of beara.

What a beautiful drive (if a little scary for someone who is afraid of heights )the scenery is magnificent ,rugged ,wild with narrow roads. The tunnell you have to drive through is short but cool as arethe two other more open tunnell's.

Six of us walked part of the Beara Way from Glengarriff to Allihies including the islands of Garnish, Bear and Dursey. It was a lovely trip. The people were friendly, there were plenty of birds and historical sites to see and the walking was not too strenuous! There are plenty of good B and B's on the way. I would... More

I can honestly say that it is the most beautiful part of Ireland. Everywhere you look there is always something breath taking to see. Even the most remote places are populated and has it's own charm. Dursey island and Garinish spots are the most beautiful. Would highly recommend to anyone who loves nature, hills and water to visit this place.

If you actually want one of the most scenic routes in Ireland you should make a nice road trip to the beara way along the coast of Ireland, as well as the Ring of Kerry.

Beautiful part of the world. Some of the roads are on the narrow side but this adds to the experience. Check out the cable car to Dursey Island and go over Healy Pass for amazing views.

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