BEARA WAY

THE BEARA WAY

The Beara Way is a 196km circular route along the Beara Peninsula, crossing Co. Cork and Co. Kerry. The total aggregate ascent is nearly 5300m over the whole route and includes some short but steep climbs.
A loop of the route circumnavigates Bere Island with its great forts, and a spur takes you out (by a trip on Ireland’s only cable-car) to Dursey Island.

THINGS TO SEE

The Beara route crosses a fairly isolated part of Ireland and makes you visit one of the most unspoilt parts of the south-west region.
It offers magnificently rugged mountain and seacoast scenery which frequently passes by rich evidence of a heavily populated prehistoric past in the form of standing stones and burial monuments. There are also many fine villages, such as Allihies and Eyries, along the route.

GOOD TO KNOW

Availability of overnight accommodation is generally good along the route although some of the longer stretches between villages may require careful planning.
