Derreen Garden located in Lauragh on the Beara Peninsula. Website here, this is the first in a series of films that we will be making this year about “Beara People and Places”. We visited the Garden for just a few hours and shot all the clips in one visit. There was no acting out of scenes it was a case of running after the gardeners as they were working. The gardens are maintained by two full time gardeners and two part timers also come along in the afternoons. The garden is well worth visiting any time of the year and are spectacular.
Watch a short video of the Gardens and Gardeners here, enjoy

Eyeries Family Festival ran over the weekend of 17 – 19th of July 2015. It was a brilliant piece of organisation and I am sure all that attended for all or part of it had a great time. There were so many things to see and do that it would have been impossible to be everywhere. Well done to the committee of organisers. Many thanks also to their many sponsors the main sponsor being Marine Harvest.
Watch a video of the festival here (version two with Irish Dancing included and music).
The video was shot by Richie Hodges from Balooz with help from Senan O’Connor from Vantage Point Video. Sorry if we missed you, but as said above very difficult to do everything. (Just added some Irish dancing thanks to John Angles)

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.
