Nestled snugly on the northern coastline of County Kerry and forming part of the trail known as the Ring of Kerry is the wonderfully traditional village of Glenbeigh. A Glenbeigh holiday is perfect for those who want to get away from it all and take in some naturally stunning scenery to help them relax completely. A Glenbeigh holiday rental cottage will provide all of the comforts of home with the added bonus of some of the most breath-taking views from the window, no matter what time of the day or night you look out of it. A Glenbeigh holiday can also be a very active one if you choose it to be, leaving you fully refreshed and raring to go when the time comes to return home.
A Glenbeigh holiday places an emphasis on rest and relaxation in peaceful surroundings although there is a good range of activities available in the village should you be feeling energetic. This includes outdoor pursuits such as cycling, walking, fishing, surfing, sailing, windsurfing, paragliding and horse riding. Glenbeigh is also home to the Dooks Golf Club which boasts being the oldest in County Kerry, having been opened in 1889.
If you can bear to leave your wonderful Glenbeigh holiday rental cottage then there are some great towns and villages to be explored in the area. This includes the “village” of Bog, a living and breathing museum just outside Glenbeigh. The Bog Village Museum is the only one of its kind in Europe and is dotted with authentic, reconstructed thatched roof cottages that turf cutters of the 18th century would have called home. Visitors can stroll around a replica turf cutter’s house, an authentic old blacksmith’s forge, feed the trademark Bog Village ponies and pet the village’s wolfhounds.
