Truly Rugged Ireland Not Yet Been Commercialised
If its real taste of Ireland your after then the Ring of Beara really does knock spots off its nearby rival (the infamous Ring if Kerry) both these routes basically cross at Kenmare in County Kerry so easy really to compare both if you wish.
However for me the ring of Beara is the one for taking you back to traditional Irish ways and means, if you call in a pub or bar on this route you will find old men in Wellingtons and tweed jackets held close with string no doubt wearing a flat cap also!
They will be speaking a form of English that I defy you to pick out more than a couple of word per sentence as they babble on relentlessly waving their arms in a fashion to express themselves.
The Scenery too is far more rugged than that on the ring of Kerry and the sparsely populated fields and hillsides do nothing to deter form its charm, all in all a pleasure especially as the roads are at present too narrow for tourist busses !
