Etched into the sides of the Miskish and Knockgour mountains of the Slieve Miskish range which knuckles the Beara peninsula west, the Beara Bridle Way is Ireland’s first ever horse trail. The main trail hugs the flanks of the mountains, overlooking 17 kilometres of rugged mountain scenery, stunning seascapes and dazzling island views. It includes some optional but highly recommended detours that climb to access even better vistas from elevated viewing points. The Bridle Way links Clonglaskin townland several kilometres west of Castletownbere town with the colourful village of Allihies, once famous for its coppermines, and the coastal townland of Urhan
near picturesque Eyeries village. Despite the wildness of the scenery, the terrain has something for all experience levels and can be
undertaken at any pace.
