My 25 year old daughter and I hiked the majority of the Beara Breifne Way with a "bus around" portion due to unavailable accommodations in the off season. We started in Castletownbere and ended in Black Lion. The entire trip was incredible in all ways and will never be forgotten! Some trail portions are a little lacking in markings and we were glad we had GPS with us, but this is not a complaint--just a "heads up." If you go make sure you have waterproof footwear as there is significant immersion when crossing boglands. I would also recommend "day-glow" visible clothing for visibility on the local and regional roads when the "trail" parallels them. Lastly, a "leave no trace" attitude will ensure that the farmers whose land you traverse will continue to support the trail system. It would not exist without their benevolence. This was a trip of a lifetime----the other was walking the Camino de Santiago.
