    Myself and my son hiked across the route a few months back . Its an unspoilt area with some rugged terrain , but mostly pretty good under foot . The weather can be quite different higher up and its exposed so prepare well , its a number of hours to complete .

    This was as great little spot to check out. I walked by it on my way into town. The bridge is pretty neat. There is also a walking path near it. I didn't have the time to see where it went, but I will definitely stop again the next time I'm in Kenmare. It was a great town and I'm looking forward to going back next year.

    Well worth a visit to this beautiful catholic church situated in the middle of Kenmare town. It is kept very clean & inviting to sit and pray.

    I’ve been driving & camping with my bike & hiking boots for a week now and am loving just jumping onto different parts of The Beara Way Walk. It really is a very special area on the SWest coast of Ireland.
    For me personally I much prefer The Beara to the far more tourist route of The Ring of Kerry. It’s quieter the roads much smaller so no big tourist coaches and loads of groups of folks jumping on & off at certain points. This area is far more relaxed and peaceful. The coastline is actually quite different to the one further north more bays & tiny little coves rather than big Cliffs.

    Beautiful scenery. Lovely artist with amazing works of art. Road is very narrow going up and we felt like are we going the wrong way. We were definitely delighted that we continued and didn't turn around. We got a personal tour around think everyone does. Will explain all about the art works and ans questions. Only thing I wished I knew before hand was that we could have booked accommodation there. Think will definitely have to stay if down that way again a little piece of heaven.

    From my initial message re opening times to purchasing the fabulous Skellig image (beautifully framed) this was a fabulous experience. So friendly and professional. We cannot wait to hang our beautiful photo up on the wall !!

    This was a very pleasant visit to see beautiful craftmanship with gorgeous timber, The tables and chairs were particularly facinating- lovely cofee tables which would tempt you to buy a piece which would be a great talking point in your home. It's a place you could see yourself returning to again and again.

    while visiting the town of Kenmare we stopped to visit the inside of this church. It was absolutely beautiful- the architecture, flooring, stained glass, vaulted ceilings, altars and more. Definitely worth a quick stop if visiting the town

    If you’re visiting Cromwell Bridge, you might as well walk across the street and see this little Holy Well. It’s small, but very well kept up. Visitors come here to pray for healing.

    Nora was fantastic teaching me how to make Kenmare lace! Very patient and excellent instruction on how to make very beautiful lace. If you want to learn how to make lace, I highly recommend you take the time and book a lesson!

    Popped in on the off chance. Sat out the back, too noisy and smokey. So moved indoors, cosy and good atmosphere. Ordered food and it was fabulous. We had a good evening.

    Tucked away in a mews-style property on Henry Street, the Kenmare Soap Shop is a really welcoming and interesting place. All kinds of soaps, therapies and skin care, and some terrific art and craft products too - the cheeky greetings cards are worth a look on their own!

    I bought a bottle of the house's home-made liquid dog soap and it's brilliant. Our little minpin's coat has come up brilliantly!
