Beara Motorcycling a 220 km route that takes in the Beara peninsula and inland towards kilgarvan Ballingeary and Durrus, done on a nice Easter Saturday with my friend Chris from xrvireland.org , leaving Allihies and taking the quickest route on the North side of the Beara to Kenmare and a short stop in Café Moka for breakfast. It was busy in Kenmare so we headed off sharpish up the main road towards Kilgarvan and further, and then took a twisted set of boreens to Kealkill and further on to Durrus, the aim being to cross the countryside and getting to Durrus avoiding Bantry. Of course it takes a lot longer but some stunning scenery and roads. Cup of tea in Durrus and then a blast back to Allihies on the south side of the Beara. Nice day out took 2 hours to ride the 80KM from Kenmare to Durrus only stopping for some photos.
