Shore Angling

There are 23 designated shore angling sites on the island and around the peninsula that offer a wide variety of species.

You will find every thing you need to know at www.sea-angling-ireland.org As the man says “People rarely bother fishing off islands here and yet the returns can be far better than the mainland, perhaps thanks to the complete lack of angling pressure.”

 

 

WALKING & CYCLING

The Beara Way and Beara Cycling Route both take in Bere Island. For good information and map of loop walks on Bere Island see http://www.walking.ireland.ie (Bicycles can be rented at the Lodge.)
