Return to Beara
The distinctive Kerry coastline consists of three main peninsulas – the Dingle Peninsula to the north, the central Iveragh Peninsula (which contains the famous ‘Ring of Kerry’) and to the south the Beara Peninsula. The latter is shared with County Cork.
For summer vacation this year, we located ourselves in the beautiful town of Kenmare, which is an ideal base for undertaking both ‘rings’ – the Ring of Kerry and the Ring of Beara. The shots in this post are from several locations on Beara. The real secret though, is to get off the beaten track as much as your time and itinerary will allow. I have taken to driving down all kinds of side-roads and lane-ways – just to see what might be there – and often there are gems awaiting.
