Section 16 - Kerry

Glenbeigh - Annascaul


Stunning coastal views bring the cyclist from Glenbeigh to the small fishing village of Cromane and into the lively market town of Killorglin, in the heart of the Reeks District. Located on the banks of the River Laune, a stroll around the town with its brightly coloured buildings reveals a buzzing restaurant scene, artisan shops and cosy traditional pubs. The town is home to Ireland’s oldest festival – Puck Fair which takes place over three days in August each year and where a goat is crowned king! The Reeks District offers visitors a wide range of things to do and see including Ireland’s 3 highest peaks, lakes and rivers, forests, valleys and beaches with a range of activity providers waiting for you to explore this part of Kerry. From Killorglin, the route takes cyclists through the rural villages of Milltown and Castlemaine (home of the Wild Colonial Boy) and into Inch. Inch Beach is a blue flag beach offering a range of water sports activities in the summer season as well as restaurants and accommodation. On leaving Inch, the route heads west to Annascaul village, the birth place of Tom Crean, Antarctic explorer.
