From Killarney to Castletownbere on Beara Peninsula, Ireland

October 7. 

Leaving Killarney National Park we drove through the mountains on our way to the Beara Peninsula. Drive to Killarney National Park in IrelandWe stopped at Ardgroom Village Inn for an Irish Coffee. At the Village Inn Pub in Ardgroom, I had this Irish CoffeeRing of Beara sign in an Ardgroom Pub, IrelandA little further along, at Eyeries, we did a quick check of the beach and docks.Beach on the Beara Peninsula in IrelandThe colourful boats at the dock. A bright boat in the bay of Castletownbere on the Beara Peninsula in IrelandA fishing boat in Castletownbere, IrelandEyeries was the turn-off for Castletownbere. Beara Sign with RouteIt had been a long day. We were running out of light and getting hungry so we missed the rest of the Beara Peninsula and did a ‘zoomer’ straight to Castletownbere. There we booked into a B&B, and then headed out for a dinner of hake, salad and chips. A dinner of hake, salad and chips at Castletownbere on the west coast of IrelandSpent a quiet evening at the famous McCarthy’s Bar.

On this day, October 7, we went from Sneem to Castletownbere via the Ballighbeama Gap and Killarney National Park. The next day we went back around the tip of Beara to see what we’d missed, then to the Mizen Head Peninsula before ending up in Skibbereen.
