About this location
The Province of Munster region
County Cork is full of contrast; it is home to Ireland’s second largest city and dozens of vibrant, atmospheric towns and villages. Yet it’s full of truly breathtaking natural beauty. With unspoilt beaches, historic castles, and modern visitor attractions, there’s plenty for all ages to absorb. If you’re a fan of beautiful scenery, dramatic skies and exploration, this is the place for you.
Castletownbere is nestled between the Caha and Slieve Miskish Mountains and is sheltered from the Atlantic Ocean by Bere Island. Located at the mouth to Bantry Bay, (the world’s second deepest bay) Castletownbere Harbour provides extensive piers with safe berthing for both commercial and pleasure craft. Being on the Gulf Stream the winters are very mild and rarely do temperatures drop to freezing.
The town, ancestral seat of Clan O'Sullivan Bere with Dunboy Castle within walking distance, (site of the last battle in Ireland between Elizabeth I and the Gaelic Chiefdoms) is the perfect base for both visitors and environmentalists alike to explore the unspoilt beauty of the Beara Peninsula's flora & fauna and the many antiquities it has to offer.
The Beara Way Consists of 9 stages and is 125 miles in total. All sections are well marked and you can join the walk at any stage in the peninsula
