This is a GENERAL OVERVIEW OF THE AREA piece I have written for Kenmare Chamber/Tourism
Kenmare Bay/Inbhear Scéine (Ir.) is a 50mile long, narrow sea inlet sheltered between Iveragh peninsula with Ireland’s highest mountain range and the wild, bare uplands of Beara to the south. The bay is very accessible along its length with many harbours, inlets and creeks. It is 18km at its mouth, narrowing gradually as it bisects and separates scenic mature woodlands. There are a number of islands on the bay the most extensive being Dinish and Dunkerron islands close to Kenmare town.
Kenmare is now home to the largest raptor in Europe, the white-tailed sea eagle which has nesting sites on the bay. The bay also has a large colony of seals. It is a popular destination for sea angling, sea cruises and sail training and sea sports. The bay is significant for its micro-climate, which encourages an ecological biodiversity of lush vegetation and natural habitats. The area is outstanding for the richness of historical and archaeological which remain intact. Several hundred archaeological sites lie close to the shoreline and stone circles, standing stones and other monuments abound. In the old mythological tales written in the 12th century by Irish monks, Kenmare Bay is cited as the supposed landing of the last invasion of Ireland by Milesians and the Irish name for the bay, Inbhear Scéine, is linked to these tales.
Kenmare’s most iconic symbol is its double-arched Art Deco bridge, which spans Kenmare Bay at its narrowest point. The bridge is a focal point for the spectacular sunsets, which light up the western skies and the waters of the bay.
At the innermost corner of the bay is Kenmare, a pretty, heritage town with the intimacy and feel of a village. It offers seafood and fine dining, traditional music and quality accommodation all in a surprisingly compact triangle of historic buildings. Within a day’s drive of the town, the furthest reaches of both peninsulas can be accessed, making Kenmare town an ideal and popular all season destination.

I run this ecological B&B made out of hemp* Sleeps x 6. Rooms from E70 per night.. I have travelled a good deal myself and understand the value of meeting locals who can give detailed, personal advice. I think if you like the images of my house and the offering of natural/organic etc. you will love Kenmare and environs anyway and I try to provide information to give a personalized portal into the best of its many hidden offerings.
I am a regular hiker, explorer of the area close to hand and the two peninsulas and can give you daily guidance at breakfast time on what most suited to your desires and depending on the day's weather. I have produced a book on the urban heritage of the town and appreciate Kenmare's special character as a fine example of a 17th planned estate town. I can advise on best authentic food, music, eating and shopping experiences of which Kenmare is well supplied.
If you like nature and natural surroundings, outstandingly stunning landscape, great hill trails, eco-living, conversation, sitting in the library room, exploring mountain paths and ancient monuments then going into town for fine dining experiences and live music you will find plenty to do here for several days on end.
I have travelled around most parts of Ireland so I can offer advice on your onward journey from here.
