Experience the real hidden Ireland that time forgot


Named after Princess Beara, the Spanish wife of Eoghan Mór, legendary King of Munster, the staggeringly beautiful Beara peninsula is Ireland's foremost hidden travel gem. It retains its old-world charm and has a wild beauty and friendly atmosphere all of its own. Rugged, ancient and untamed, the area abounds with archaeological evidence of human history dating back several thousand years.
It is scattered with postcard pretty towns and villages where the locals are renowned for their friendliness and hospitality, and they protect their Irish traditional culture fiercely. The food in most pubs and restaurants is mouth watering, and it is served literally from field, or ocean, to table.
The music sessions often start early evening and anybody with a musical talent can be invited to join in!
As the roads here are narrow and inaccessible to the bigger tour buses, it is off the main tourist trail.
Plenty of breaks for the many photo opportunities / little coffee shops etc. A day to remember with memories to last!

Itinerary

Leaving your accommodation in Killarney we travel directly to Kenmare, the gateway to the Beara peninsula. Kenmare, famous for its restaurants, and its centuries old Kenmare lace.

From Kenmare we make out way over the spectacular and remote Healy Pass to the lovely village of Adrigole, overlooked by the imposing Hungry Hill.

On to Castletownbere, one of Ireland's most important fishing ports, where you will find a variety of cafes and restaurants serving the catch of the day.

One of the cherished treasures of the Beara Peninsula is the colourful village of Allihies, against an amphitheater of mountains and the imposing copper mine as a backdrop. It is believed that the four mythological Children of Lir are buried here. Just outside the village is the beautiful Ballydonegan beach, the only beach in Ireland made from crushed stone.

Returning back to base, you will pass through a chain of village gems, including Eyeries, Ardgroom, and Lauragh. There will be plenty of breaks, and don't forget your camera…

A Recent Review of this tour

Anne and her husband-driver Dave were absolutely wonderful! They were attentive to all our needs (my husband, me, and our 12 year old granddaughter). Anne is a great source of information and Dave is a superb driver. They took us to spots we would never have known about. We are so glad we booked them and feel like we now have Irish friends.
