Glenbeigh is a truly magical place often referred to as “The Jewel in the Ring of Kerry”. It is the ideal holiday location. Whether you are looking for a fun-filled family holiday or a romantic break away, there really is something here for everyone. Enjoy the six miles of golden, sandy, blue flag Rossbeigh Beach or the peace and beauty of the rivers and lakes. Glenbeigh is cosily tucked in to the surrounding horseshoe of hills and Seefin Mountains. The Caragh River and the Behy River flow at either side of the village into Castlemaine Harbour.
The mountain scenery here is magnificent, and the circuit of the hills from Seefin to Drung Hill is called the “Glenbeigh Horseshoe” and is part of the greater “Kerry Way”, one of Kerry’s finest mountain walks. However you prefer to spend your holidays, whether it’s birdwatching, walking, playing golf (on the famous Dooks Golf Links), fishing, hang gliding, surfing or kayaking, horse trekking on Rossbeigh Beach or just relaxing, Glenbeigh really does have it all. Immerse yourself in the friendliness and hospitality of the local people and the beauty of our wonderful destination, come and see for yourself just how much we have to offer!
