Visit the Healy Pass

Get some altitude and enjoy the landscape!

If you love the great outdoors where nature reigns supreme, then the Healy Pass is for you! This mountain pass has the advantage of overlooking one of the most beautiful peninsula in County Cork: the Beara Peninsula.

It can be reached by road, via the Beara Way tourist circuit, which starts in Kenmare, goes through the top of the Healy Pass, passes through Allihies, Eyeries and Ardgroom and ends in Bantry Bay.

The more athletic can tackle it by bike, but the steepness of the climb may discourage the bravest among you. It must be said that the path is beautiful, but requires endurance and a good physical level. Not to be done if you have any doubt about your ability to handle steep slopes!

For the cars, after a short hour of circuit, you will finally reach the Healy Pass. For parking, a parking lot has been set up, as well as a belvedere to offer you a magnificent panorama of the surroundings. On the program, silence and wild nature. Greenery wherever you look. Endless mountains, valleys and lakes. And of course, the Atlantic Ocean in the distance.

In short: a feast for the eyes, which will not leave you indifferent! You will thus be able to admire the coasts of the peninsula, with Bantry Bay stretching a few kilometers away… A sumptuous landscape, which gives all its letters of nobility to Ireland!
