The Beara Way is a designated National Waymarked Trail in Ireland. It forms a circular path around the Beara Peninsula in the Counties of Cork and Kerry in southern Ireland. The trail connects with the larger E8 route, which runs to Istanbul, Turkey. Completing a hike of the Beara Way is of overall moderate difficulty. Terrain is generally mild, the region offers spectacular views without straying too far from civilization. Like other trails in Ireland, wet weather can make the difficulty much more challenging.
