The Beara Way is one of Irelands best kept secrets. It is a looped walk on a narrow peninsula jutting out into the Wild Atlantic. The walk is approximately 160 km long with its main trailhead in the lovely village of Glenariff, Co. Cork.
This is possibly one of the most unspoilt walks in the south of Ireland. Set against the famed Bantry Bay, the colourful villages of Allihies, Eyeries and Castletownbere are really picture book.
This historic part of the country with its bronze age megaliths is the homeland of the old Irish O’Sullivan Beare Clan. The walk covers two counties of Cork and Kerry.
