Explore the wonders of the magnificent Beara Peninsula, its dramatic history, stories, and natural beauty in the care of expert hillwalking and storytelling guide, local writer, cartoonist, environmentalist and storyteller, Brian Wall.

Over three hundred and sixty million years in the making and occupied by humans for the last nine and a half thousand, the Beara is one of the wildest and most beautiful places in Ireland. Let Brian Wall bring you on a journey through its marvellous landscape, history, and traditions, introducing you to its folklore, flora and fauna as we go.

Walks can be tailored to suit your needs - whether it be a ramble through the oak woods of Glengarriff, a wander in the mountains, a visit to a stone-age tomb, the exploration of a bronze-age copper mine or a trip to an island.

You can also opt to settle down and peer through the telescope of time, back into Ireland's past through stories from our nine thousand year-old tradition, enjoying tales from the most ancient times to the more recent.

Alternatively, you can take the opportunity to learn how to unwind the stress of daily life through meditation as originally expounded 2600 years ago by Siddhartha Gautama (known as the Buddha) and in more recent times by Jiddu Krishnamurti.

Transport can be provided.
