Overview
More
We are a small business, principally running a commercial sheep farm. We also have a passion for nature, the countryside and conservation. We embrace both business & tourism in an effort to make your experience of Ireland a memorable one. Agri-Tourism, Eco-Tourism, we warmly welcome you here. We are a private park, we maintain everything at our own expense which is why we make a small charge on entry. There is much of Kerry that is inaccessible, our park offers access through well maintained paths together with facilities as you may expect at any attraction, washrooms, wheelchair access and much more. All of this takes funds to maintain and to enhance your experience here on Beara. We do however take exception to people who flout our not unreasonable requests such as not paying and arriving assuming they can drive straight in, ignoring our signage. If this is your attitude then you are not at all welcome and will be politely but firmly told to leave. Peter Marketing and Admin.

Lovely to read your review, we think the €6, reduced to €5 out of season, is very good value too. The yellow walk is lovely and you will enjoy it, the terrain can be wet so good footwear is needed. See you again Best wishes...More

A must if you are around Kenmare. Fantastic views of the Kingdom. Bring proper hiking boots. Can be mucky in places and loose under foot

It is a 1.5 hours hike and you need good shoes and a bit of a condition, but the trail is spectecular. Rare plants can be found, such as the Pinguicula.
