View of the Beara Peninsula - mrantanas - cc

The coast of the Beara Peninsula is part of the Wild Atlantic Way, the famous tourist route along the Irish west coast. Magnificent, and located in County Cork, it is well worth the detour, and offers its share of majestic and inhospitable landscapes, flirting with the Atlantic Ocean… Landscapes to be walked along for the greatest pleasure of the eyes!

Visit the Coast of the Beara Peninsula

Steep and wild landscapes!

The coast of the Beara Peninsula is classically done by car, bus, or for the bravest by bike. You will have to start from the small village of Allihies and follow the R575 road.

Sometimes in bad condition, the road can be narrow, and difficult in case of vehicle in both directions … It should be said that the difference in altitude can also be consequent, and that the circuit winds along the mountains and cliffs of the coast. Also, be careful, and don’t venture by bike on this road if you don’t feel able to…

Nevertheless, the circuit is worth it: you will be able to admire sumptuous panoramas overlooking the Atlantic Ocean… On the program, cliffs, mountains, rocks, bays, beaches… In short: something to feel at the end of the world, away from civilization, while enjoying the Irish wilderness!

The circuit has an indescribable charm. Don’t hesitate to park on the spaces provided for a stopover and a photo break. It must be said that the coast is worth the detour, and offers very different landscapes depending on the weather (the agitated sea sometimes offers spectacular waves that crash on the reefs!).
