Views of one of the most beautiful peninsulas in Ireland, the Beara peninsula. We went there once again the other day, and this time we travelled from the mountain village of Eyeries, along the coast road with the most incredible sea views looking towards the Kerry mountains and the open Atlantic, and inland towards the Slieve Miskish Mountains. After a beautiful journey we arrived in Allihies. I would like to share some of the photos I took along the way, even though the day was hazy and this does not make for clear photography.
Looking towards the Kerry mountains, the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, with Carrantuohill as the highest peak in Ireland.
The open Ocean and a misty view of the Cow and the Calf islands.
Typical Irish traditional cottage along the road.
The road winds along the coast with very rocky views looking inland. I think that the main rocks are slate and shale, but there could also be some old red sandstone.
Sheep are the main farm income around here, and they grace the landscape with their presence.
I found these cliffs fascinating and the way the waves were crashing into them!
Looking back at Allihies village far in the distance, with the ancient copper mines behind it.
