The Beara & Sheep's Head Peninsulas

A Walking Guide

The Beara and Sheep’s Head Peninsulas, in the southwest of Ireland, are both unspoiled and hold some of Ireland's most beautiful scenery. These routes range from short hikes to longer treks, coastal and inland, something to suit everyone's interest. The twenty-five routes are accompanied by quality photographs and specially drawn maps. Walk descriptions include material on the rich natural history, folklore, geology and place names of the area.

Stroll the woodland and mountain trails of Gougane Barra or take on Hungry Hill for a more challenging hillwalk, with lots more in between. There is no better way to explore this landscape than on foot.
