"...hiking along livestock paths, rocky seacoasts and narrow local roads on the Beara Peninsula in April, I often felt as if I'd come to the edge of the world. On mountaintop ridges, I'd be surrounded only by sheep. The wind would whip up and nearly flatten me, and I'd wonder if anyone would notice if I blew off the trail into the Atlantic... Ambling along little dirt roads flanked by neat but seemingly deserted cottages, I'd hear nothing but the lowing of cattle and the excited barking of sheepdogs." The New York Times
The Beara Peninsula is a sight to behold and the walking trails offer something for everyone, from the novice walker to the experienced hiker. The trails around Ardgroom and the Beara Coast House are clearly marked out, but make sure to chat to the locals if you're looking to some lesser-known trails. The Beara Peninsula has over 100 miles of walking trails - with panoramic views of the Atlantic coastline, beautiful leafy tree-lined trails, mountain treks to enjoy.
