Map Description

The western end of the Beara Peninsula and the southern section of the Iveragh Peninsula feature on Sheet 84. A significant portion of the Beara Way is marked on the map and a sizeable section of the Kerry Way is also included. The corresponding cycling routes for the Beara Way and the Ring of Kerry are also identified on Sheet 84. The main mountain ranges are the Slieve Miskish and Caha Mountain ranges on the Beara Peninsula and the Dunkerrons on the Iveragh Peninsula. Both Dursey and Bear Islands are popular off-shore trips for walkers visiting the Beara Peninsula.

The Caha, Slieve Miskish and Dunkerron Mountain Ranges

There are three main mountain ranges on Sheet 84. The Caha Mountains are the most prominent on the eastern side of the Beara Peninsula with the imposing rocky mound of Hungry Hill being the most prominent at a height of 682m. The Slieve Miskish Mountains are further to the west on the Beara Peninsula with the rocky mass of Maulin and Lackawee forming a spectacular backdrop to Eyeries village. The Dunkerron Mountains are on the southern end of the Iveragh Peninsula with the broad summit of Coomcallee forming the upland hub at the centre.

The Beara Way

At over 220km, the Beara Way is one of the longer walking trails in Ireland and is found on Sheets 84 & 85. The majority of the trail is feeatured on this map. It picks up the trail a few kilometres before Adrigole continues to Castletownbearhaven, then around Bear Island before passing through Allihies and out to Dursey Island. The return leg along north of the peninsula goes through Eyries, Ardgroom, Lauragh and Tuosist. In total, Sheet 84 includes around 6-7 days of walking on the Beara Way.

The Kerry Way / Slí Uibh Ráthach

In the recent past, the Kerry Way had been the longest walking trail in Ireland at over 210km. The walking trail starts and finishes in Killarney and completes a circuit of the Iveragh Peninsula. This is roughly the equivalent to an off-road version of the famous Ring of Kerry driving route. Sheet 84 picks up the Kerry Way before it reaches Waterville and follows it through Caherdaniel, Sneem, Blackwater Bridge and on as far as Templenoe. The remainder of the stage to reach Kenmare can be found on Sheet 78.

Dursey Island

With just a handful of permanent year-long residents, Dursey Island is one of the big hot-spots for walking on the Beara Peninsula. Measuring approximately 6.5km long by 1.5km wide and with the highest point at 252m, the island is the pefect size for exploring in a day. Ireland's only cable car provides an extra novelty factor as it crossses Dursey Sound to reach the island. All of the island is featured in an inset on Sheet 84.

Bear Island

There are two ferries serving Bear Island, one leaves from Castletownbearhaven and the other leaves from a few kilometers to the east at the Pontoon. The island is 10km long by 3km wide and can be explored in 1-2 days.There are over 200 people living on the island and there are options for overnight stays. The complete island is covered on Sheet 84.

Cycling Routes

Similar to the Kerry Way, the Ring of Kerry Cycle Route provides an alternative to the famous drive. The cycle is over 215km long, with around two-thirds of this is off the main road. The Sheet 84 section starts from Templenoe and turns off the N71 at Blackwater Bridge. The route crosses over to Sheet 78 for nearly 10km before re-entering Sheet 84 on its approach to Sneem. From here it continues on through Castle Cove, Caherdaniel and Waterville before finishing just short of Ballinskelligs.

The Beara Way Cycle Route is 138km long and approximately three-quarters of this features on Sheet 85. The map follows the trail from Adrigole to Castletownbearhaven, onto Bear Island and then on through Dursey Sound, Allihies, Urhin, Eyeries, Ardgroom, Lauragh, Tuosist and on towards Kenmare.

Unless the map is laminated, it is always recommended to carry the map in a plastic case to maximise its longevity.
