Eyeries, the most colourful village in Ireland

While the Way does not pass directly through the village it is close by and is an ideal starting off point. There are two points to join, one beside O'Sullivans Foodmarket, where you will see a pointer across the road for the Beara Way, Shore Angling and Beach. The other is at the opposite end of the village just east of the Post Office, it follows a lane that winds its way down to a pier

The ruins of the old Coastguard Station which stands at the entrance to Ballycrovane Harbour. The Beara Way passes right beside it. If you join the Way by taking the lane from near Eyeries Post Office when you reach the pier start walking to your right and you come to the ruins after about a mile

The Hag of Beara. A short distance off the Way, but an important place to visit. From the direction of Ballycrovane walk to the Loch Fada turn, then keep to the main road for another mile. The road goes down into a dip and then climbs steeply. At the top of this just off the road stands the rock
