Castletownbere

The main town on the Beara Peninsula, a busy port and centre for walking. It is on the south side of the peninsula and surrounded by mountains and sea. Castletownbere is the largest white fishing port in Ireland and is second to Sydney, Australia, as the safest natural harbour in the World. Fresh fish is available to buy from the Co-op behind Harrington's Hardware Store. Take a walk on the expansive wharf where you will find lots of things of interest, from fishing boats to net mending

Some local historical sights

Dereenataggart Stone Circle

To visit this stone circle go to the western end of the town, take the road to the right just after the Garda Station and follow it for about two miles. You go over a bridge, keep left at a junction and it will be on your right shortly after that.

Cloontreem Wedge Grave

To find this wedge grave take the road to the right of the Millbrook Bar, go up past Brandy Hall Bridge on your left, take the next turn to your left and keep walking for two miles. Follow all Beara Way signposts, go through a gate and up the hillside

Dunboy Castle

Dunboy Castle (Irish - Caisleán Dhún Baoi) was a stronghold of the O'Sullivan Bere, a Gaelic clan leader and 'Chief of Dunboy'. The castle is located on the Beara Peninsula in south-west Ireland near the town of Castletownbere and was built to guard and defend the harbour of Berehaven. Its presence there enabled O'Sullivan Bere to control the sea fisheries off the Irish coast and collect sizeable taxes from Irish and Continental fishing vessels sheltering in the haven. It was also a centre for the import/export trade to and from the Continent. Today, much of the castle is destroyed but the ruins are open to the public.
