WALKING – Stroll, ramble or hike

A walking holiday in Ireland allows you to view the Irish landscape, meet the people and explore the culture at your own pace. Every year we welcome walkers from all over the world who wish to visit this least exploited part of Ireland.

No matter what your ability or commitment there is something on the Beara to suit you. Rain gear and walking sticks are available free of charge to guests staying 2 days or more.

The famed Beara Way Walking Route is a circuit of the Peninsula following side roads, boreens (small roads), bog roads and tracks, taking in all that is special about the place including a variety of historical sites ranging from Ogham Stones to Wedge Graves, Stone Circles to ancient church sites and all the time providing magnificent scenery from mountains to the rugged Atlantic shoreline. We provide a free collection and drop off service for the Beara Walking Route.

It can take about 14 days to cover its 220 Kilometre length, but for the less serious walkers the Beara offers some wonderful opportunities to sample the best of the Beara with its acclaimed Loop Walks.

There are around six Loop Walks taking in a variety of terrain and scenery.

One of the most unique is Dursey Island, situated at the tip of the Peninsula it is accessible by Irelands only cable car. Few walks can have a more exciting beginning and finish.

Another nearby Island is Bere Island which still has about 200 people living and working there. Access here is by ferry and takes about 20 minutes.
