Its beauty still unspoiled, its wildness untamed, and the flash of the sea at this land’s end also its beginning. All those who come to the Beara discover it, make it, and find it, for themselves. For the tourists, the sheltered beaches, steep cliffs, historic landmarks, and year round fishing.

According to the book written by Daniel M. O’Brien,

“Beara, a journey through history” gives the carved stone head

Stones and ruins

The Hag of Beara

Legend has it she turned to stone waiting for her ships to come in. The stone is just west of Tragalee as you climb the hill.

Coral

Most people are not aware of the fact that cold water coral and calcinated seaweed can be found in Ireland. The best place to look for it is in tidal pools along the rocky shore.

Places to Visit 

Allihies, the copper town.

Ierland vakanties 

Ierland is een land van betoverende groene kleuren, ruige berglandschappen, gestoffeerd met romantische meren en doorkliefd met rivieren. Alles is nog puur natuur, het landschap, de kleding, het voedsel en de bevolking die is nog “echt”. Is het daarom dat boeiende legenden en volksverhalen, verteld bij een knapperend haardvuur, nog altijd zo levend en aktueel zijn?

Is de band van de bevolking daarom zo sterk met mysterieuze oudheden, het verleden maar tegelijk ook met de nieuwe tijd? Waar anders bieden ruimte, rust en eenvoud zoveel afwisseling?
