The Beara and Sheep’s Head Peninsulas lie in the southwest of Ireland, pointed fingers of land wedged between the Kenmare River, Bantry Bay and Dunmanus Bay. They are peaceful, unspoiled peninsulas where the wild and largely untamed nature of the landscape immediately casts its magical spell. There is no better way to explore and experience this stunning landscape than on foot.

This guidebook describes some of the best walking routes in the area: from Dursey Island and Bear Island to the Caha and Shehy Mountains, from the forest trails of Glengarriff to the lakes of Glaninchiquin,and from the tip of the Sheep’s Head to the ridges of Peakeen and Seefin. The routes range from short hikes to longer treks, coastal and inland, something to suit everyone’s interest. Each route is prefaced with a reference summary and illustrated with maps and photographs. Route descriptions include GPS coordinates, navigation guidance, access notes and short variations. There is also material on the fauna, flora, folklore, history, geology and place names of each area.
