Beara Coast House - Stay on the Beara Peninsula, along the Wild Atlantic Way

Location & Directions

"A mile or so before we arrived at Ardgroom, further west along Beara’s northern edge, we found another spot with a majestic view: the Ardgroom stone circle. Beara is dotted with an exceptional concentration of more than 600 archaeological sites – from standing stones to megalithic tombs and ring forts – and Ardgroom’s 3,000-year-old ceremonial stone circle is one of the country’s finest, its nine surviving pillars, plus one outside of the circle, still standing tall." The Guardian

The location of Beara Coast House is truly ideal for exploring the magnificent Beara Peninsula. Located just a short stroll to a traditional Irish pub, called The Village Inn. Although open all year round, it provides its full menu during the Summer months. Nearby is Harrington's which is a lovely cafe, with a tasty lunch menu, served all year round. You can also purchase petrol at the petrol station and turf for the open fire at Beara Coast House.
