It is home to fishermen, farmers, artists and passionate producers of some of the very finest Slow Foods and some where we love to spend time, wandering and picnicking. Image: Peter Cox.

Beara Peninsula Tour

 

One of our very favourite places on Earth, this region comprises of the wildest and most rugged land and seascapes in Ireland.

It is a place of rugged mountains, deep, interesting valleys, indented coastlines, incredible history and archaeology. It is also home to Ireland’s Slow Food community who add taste the wonderful experience of sharing time in rarely visited regions of Ireland.

 

The Beara Peninsula is a fiercely rugged and beautiful place, rich in archaeology and spiritual importance. It is a place of ancient megalithic monuments; stone circles, holy wells, sacred peaks and more. Our journey through this landscape and its ages will take us along rarely visited by-ways, criss-crossing the gnarled ridge-back of the peninsula at high saddles, like the Healy Pass.
