I spend a good few days on Beara and I have to say I was impressed. Great mountain landscapes with waterfalls, lakes and rivers everywhere. Roads with spectacular views and sheep all over the place. I drove for hours without meeting a car and did the Gleninchaquin Park loop walk all on my own. This is a particular special place and I have been there twice, just to see it in different light. The waterfall is stunning.
 Kenmare one the way to Beara is most certainly the best place for food and shopping, highly recommended.
