Walk the Beara Way, a dramatic peninsula located in Ireland's south west corner and one of the country's best-kept secrets. With ever-changing views over the sea and the mountains that run along its entire length as it juts out into the Atlantic, this fascinating part of Ireland lies at the entrance to the magnificent Bantry Bay. Walk through colourful fishing villages, such as Eyeries and Castletownbere and on the island of Bere. Pass Bronze Age standing stone circles and see views over the famed Skellig Islands and glimpse a whale or dolphin as you walk on coastal paths. More reasons to enjoy this wonderful hiking adventure includes the warmth of the local people, the cosy B&B’s and the obligatory pint of Guinness to refresh you after every walk.
