Glenbeigh

Glenbeigh

header.jpgGlenbeigh, a tiny fishing and holiday village, is situated on the northern lap of the Ring of Kerry at the foot of the Seefin Mountain 10 km west of Killorglin. The main attraction of this village is the superb Blue Flag beach, Rosbeigh, which stretches over four kilometres with views across the bay to the Dingle Mountains. This beautiful, unpolluted beach provides idyllic conditions for swimming (there is a life guard on duty during the day), walking and, with a number of mud flats found on the eastern side of the land, some fantastic bird watching.

The village itself offers its own unique development. The cluster of authentic walk-around thatched cottages show how the people of the 1800s lived. An Old Blacksmiths forge, the Turfcutters house, a Stable dwelling and a Dairy house can all by the tourist. As well as this, just outside the village the remains of Whyn's castle can be found, thus offering the visitor another site of historical and cultural interest.

The town is probably at its liveliest during the festival held in the month of August, where a number of races occur along the beach and which seems to attract a huge amount of tourists.
