A remote peninsula stretching out into the Atlantic Ocean, the Beara Peninsula is steeped in myths and legends. The mountains and valleys are rich in archeaological sites such as stone circles, wedge graves and other relics of the past. Travelers will find lakes cradled by gorgeous mountains and a rugged coastline with lots of great fishing spots; an amazing unspoilt landscape. Though only a few miles south of the more popular Ring of Kerry, the Beara Peninsula is a completely different world.
The Beara Peninsula is considered a best kept secret of tourists making it less visited by tourists then the Dingle Peninsula and the Ring of Kerry. However the minor roads can be more taxing on the driver. When traversing the Beara Peninsula, prepare for a nostalgic and somewhat slow drive across narrow roads, idyllic landscapes and picture-book villages.
