Route: Beara Breifne Way (Ireland)


The Beara-Breifne Way is Ireland’s longest national waymarked trail

The route has been created by local communities in a unique collaboration.

It follows the legendary fourteen-day march taken by Dónal Cam O’Sullivan Beare and his one thousand supporters in 1603, and it visits many of the places and communities shaped by their story.

The Way runs almost the length of the country and takes the walker and cyclist to some of its most beautiful and least explored areas in Ireland.

Journey along the coast of the Beara Peninsula, across six mountain ranges, along the banks of the River Shannon and through the lake regions of Roscommon and Leitrim as you travel the Beara Breifne-Way and collect the stamps to fill the Way’s ‘passport’.

The distance is 428 miles Castletownbere to Blacklion.
