Doing the Beara Way

A hike from Glengariff

The Healy Pass - Phil Beard - cc

The Healy Pass – Phil Beard – cc

It all begins and ends in the small Irish village of Glengariff in County Cork. The route then passes through unique landscapes: mountains, bays, beaches, valleys, lakes, forests… All of which is enough to plunge you into the very heart of the deep and wild Ireland so much appreciated by travel agencies!

It must be said that the Beara Way includes some of the most unspoilt corners of the whole country. The icing on the cake: the tour will guide you to remarkable archaeological sites, such as dolmens, alignments and other remains from Irish Prehistory?

You will pass through many villages with authentic charm, colourful houses and irish pubs such as :

  • Castletownbere,
  • Kenmare,
  • Allihies
  • and Eyeries.

The difficulty of the circuit is medium. It requires good hiking equipment (shoes, backpack, walking stick…etc) and we recommend you not to be on your first such trail.

Don’t hesitate to take your time, to settle down every evening in one of the villages crossed by the Beara Way. Taste the small local dishes (irish stew, fish and chips, seafood platters) and test their beers…

A nice walking trip, which will bring you back to the essential: Ireland in all its splendour.
