More rain, cycling and the second biggest natural harbor of Ireland. This is how to summarize our experience on the Beara Peninsula. In the south west of Ireland there are bigger and smaller peninsulas. One of them is the Beara Peninsula. Here we stay at the Eagle Point Caravan Park. This is one of the opportunities we have to go cycling. With little traffic on the narrow streets in this beautiful landscape it’s really good fun.
As we continue our journey we find a nice spot to camp.
We stay for a couple of nights at the Eagle Point Caravan Park.
On the Beara Peninsula we pass through Castletownbere.
Fishing is obviously very important here.

One of the little towns we come across is called Castletownbere and we are told that this is Irelands second biggest natural harbor. Not surprising at all is then the fact that fishing is very important here. This also means we get a lot of places that serve good and fresh fish. After one of our cycle tours we stop in a restaurant called Olde Bakery. Great place we can recommend to get really good food in this area.
