On a foggy plateau along the sea, the charming village of Glenbeigh provides a perfect location for visitors looking to explore the jagged peaks of the Iveragh Peninsula. The entire area will likely be shrouded in mist, but the stark character of this distinctive landscape offers plenty of opportunities to explore.

The village is really only about a block long, but there are a couple of options for local accommodations. With hostels, hotels, and vacation rentals, Glenbeigh has become a fairly popular holiday base, especially for hikers and anglers. There are hostels and hotels in other nearby towns as well, like the village of Glencar and the village of Kells.

Outdoor recreation is the primary attraction for visitors, as the mountains that surround the town, the Glenbeigh Horseshoe, features excellent hiking and climbing. More serious climbers can attempt to scale Ireland’s highest peak, the nearby Carrantouhill. Trout fishing is also popular in Glenbeigh, as the Lough Coomasaharn is an exceptional angling spot. Swimming and water sports can be found at Rossbeigh Strand, a particularly lovely stretch of sandy beach along Ireland’s coast.

Glenbeigh is considered “the Jewel in the Ring of Kerry,” recognizing the village’s extensive natural heritage and beautiful location. Natterjack Toad, Kerry Bog Pony, Caragh Lake, and Rock Art are well-frequented attractions in the area, so a trip outside of your local hostel or hotel will provide plenty of opportunities to experience some of the history of the area.

One of the more popular landmarks is right outside of the village, the ruin of “Wynne’s Folly.” This castle mansion was built in 1867, and was the location of many terrible tragedies.

Visitors to Glenbeigh will likely have to get here by bus, from either Waterville or Killarney. Car rentals are also available, and would be a good option for travelers who plan to explore this part of Ireland.
