The Beara Peninsula is a spectacular peninsula. One of the fingers of land jutting out of the south west corner of Ireland in Munster. It is saved of all the hustle and bustle that can be found in Kerry, simply as it is not possible to drive around in a coach. Here lots of photos and photography of the region.

Dooneen Copper Mine

Dooneen Copper Mine on the Beara Peninsula near the picturesque village of Allihies. It was the first of the copper mines to open up in the area in the early 19th century. Here is a little video I made to practice my video making skills. Promoting Beara and getting people to make it as far as here….

Watch the short video about the Dooneen Copper Mine Below

This video was shot on a zero budget.

Allihies Ireland

Allihies Ireland, let it “Cast a Spell” on you. A song by Pat Higgins which he recorded at shotgun studios Reentrisk, Beara Co. Cork.

This is the full length video of Pat’s song about Allihies Ireland made after the huge success of the popular short version. There are twice as many video clips on this version so watch it until the end and you might see your self. I can name about 80 people in the video, but there are many more.

Allihies Ireland

As can be seen in the video Allihies is a fantastic place to come and stay. Plenty of options for accommodation and food. As well a huge range of activities from the easy going walk to extreme sports.
