GlenbeighApprox. Time: 2 hours
Activity Level: Easiest

A popular holiday base situated at the entrance to a horseshoe of mountains where the Behy River flows into Dingle Bay, Glenbeigh nestles at the foot of Seefin Mountains (1,621 feet). Around Glenbeigh, the mountain scenery is magnificent, and the circuit of the hills from Seefin to Drung Hill, called the "Glenbeigh Horse-shoe", is one of Kerry's finest mountain walks. A feature of the circuit is the series of glacial corries and lakes which lie at the head of the Behy valley. There is trout fishing on Lough Coomasaharn, the largest of the lakes, and the Behy River. From Glenbeigh it is 3 miles (5km) via the Windy Gap, Blackstones Bridge and the course of the Caragh River, with lovely scenery all the way, to the angling and climbing centre of Glencar. Caragh Lake is a beautiful expanse of water 4 miles (6km) long, set among broom and heather-covered hills with majestic mountains in the background.
