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.

Hi jbrover and thank you for taking the trouble to write a review. Indeed the routes this time of the year can be challenging and very wet underfoot. The trails are often quite wet even with spells of dry weather as the peat never fully...More
