I always suggest to guests that this Peninsula - should be driven in
the figure of 8.
For me, I think that its the most beautiful of the 3 Peninsulas and
in mileage the longest.
If you are thinking of driving the Beara Peninsula, on returning,
should consider stopping in Kenmare Town for dinner.
From Killarney take the N71 to Kenmare and the Tunnel Road N71 to
Glengarriff. From Glengarriff (Garnish Island) to Adrigole R572 and
the Healy Pass R574 to Lauragh. From Lauragh take the R571 passing
through Ardgroom, Eyeries, Allihies, Ballydonegan and look out for
the Cable Car signposting to Dursey Island.
Take the trip to the Island - a tip - at the Cable Car, an animal
the right of way to cross first.
Returning to the Fishing Port of Castletownbere R572 and Adrigole.
Once again over the Healy Pass R574 to Lauragh and onwards to
From Kenmare return to Killarney using Molls Gap - Ladies View and
The National Park.
