Our Cycling, Hiking & Walking tours in Cork visit both the Beara Peninsula & the Sheep’s Head Peninsula.
Beara’s breathtaking panoramas are dominated by mountains and sea. The Caha Mountains and Slieve Miskish Mountains form the spine of the peninsula, which is washed by Kenmare Bay to the north and Bantry Bay to the south. The folding of the rock strata throughout millennia has left the swirling wave-like patterns across the mountains, which are so characteristic of the Beara landscape.
The Sheep’s Head Peninsula is a peaceful and unchanged corner of southwest Ireland offering a variety of terrain, all with beautiful views. It takes in a superb moorland crest and rugged cliffs as well as easy lowland terrain. The Sheep’s Head Way is a long distance walk encompassing The Sheep’s Head Peninsula and the general Bantry area.
