Kenmare to Castletownbere Cycle

The Healy Pass

This ride from the lovely town of Kenmare takes you through the beautiful and remote Beara Peninsula. There are two climbs on the way, but rarely has it been so worth the effort.

You start with some easy riding along backroads before you climb the gentle Caha Pass. This offers fantastic views north and south before you descend to Glengarriff.
