  • The Beara peninsula is gorgeous, rough... the drive across the Healy Pass is breath-taking. Often noted as Ireland the way Ireland used to be... this road was only built about 1931... as a way to connect the two sides of the peninsula, half if which is i n County Kerry and half in County Cork... pic taken at Healy Pass...
  • Beautiful place. Lovely walk, cycle for strong cyclists. Fantastic views at both sides of Beara peninsula, Glenmore lake, Kenmare River, Bantry bay. Beautiful windy road leading to pass itself. Little gift shop and toilet on top. Nice caffe as well.If interested in walking through Healy pass, watch traffic carefully at longer distance to be able to pass it safely. Roads at both sides are very narrow.
  • Lovely little mountain pass, well surfaced and not too difficult. Rises about 1,000 feet before reaching the top and the descent over the other side. Head from south to north side for the best views
  • The road through Healy Pass on the Beara peninsula goes through some beautiful Irish 'wilderness' inhabited primarily by sheep but you may meet John O'Shea the shepherd if you are lucky. For folks not accustomed to small Irish roads, keep in mind that the road is very narrow but the landscape is free of trees so you can see well ahead if someone is coming the other way. We had no problems at all. If you are driving the Beara do not miss this beautiful drive. There is an amazing view from the top of the pass.
  • One of those places you need to see for yourself. Pictures don't do the place justice!
