Beara Peninsula Day Tour
The Beara Peninsulais much less travelled than its near neighbours of the Dingle Peninsula and the Ring of Kerry, but it is as beautiful and dramatic as the better known routes in the Kerry area.
Your tour will bring you to the lovely town of Kenmare, dramatically set within mountain ranges at the foot of the Kenmare river. From here you will travel along the northern edge of the Beara Peninsula to Kilmackillogue Pier where we can stop and perhaps stay a while at O’Sullivan’s Bar on the pier. This is rural Ireland at its best. A lovely pub in a coastal location with stunning scenery in every direction.
The tour will then travel over at the Healy Pass into County Cork. This mountain pass gives breathtaking views of the Cork and Kerry mountain ranges. We will join the southern edge of the Peninsula at Adrigole and travel to Glengariff, Co. Cork.
At Glengariff, you will have an opportunity to take lunch. There is also the option to take the short boat trip out to Garnish Island and visit the gardens there.
A trip to Garnish Island is recommended. The manicured gardens are a joy to visit and the boat trip is short but provides magnificent scenery of the Glengariff area.
This tour gives constant views of mountains, sea and lakes. It is a dream route for photographers. It is a stunning experience to travel this route.
