The main town on the Beara Peninsula. Castletownbere is a great town to use for visiting the Beara. It is Ireland’s biggest white fishing port and the second biggest fishing port in Ireland. Here lots of photos and photography of the region.
Whales and Dolphins have been around and lucky for some, Patrick Lyne from the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group organised a boat and a group of people got to go out for two hours to see the beautiful creatures. 5 Humpback whales, Minke Whale and a few hundred common dolphins. As well as numerous sea birds. The 12 people on the boat had a great time and saw some truly fantastic animals.
And a second trip out with an underwater camera to add some clips to the film, Basking Shark and Dolphins

Beara Charity Cycle July 2015. The Beara Charity Cycle has had a change of circuit and a change of date. The new circuit allows for people to see the old Beara Road from Eyeries around the coast to Ardgroom. The date change is due to the clash with the Kenmare cycle weekend.
watch a new updated video including the new loop around the Ring of Beara from Eyeries to Ardgroom
Beara Charity Cycle July 2015
The new circuit is basically two loops, the first loop is the longest at 69 KM and goes from Castletownbere to Allihies and on to Urhan and Eyeries. From there the Ring of Beara is followed along the coastal road towards Kilcatherine and on to Ardgroom. Then back to Town which makes for a circuit of 69 KM.
Back in town for a cup of tea and then the loop from town to Adrigole over the Healey Pass into Lauragh and back via the Festival of Eyeries. It is great to be able to stop in Eyeries for some refreshments and support their village festival. The second circuit is 53KM. So total is 122KM these distances are approximates.
