Welcome to Castletownbere


Castletownbere is a small but vibrant town nestled at the heart of the beautiful Beara Peninsula. The town sits between the Caha and Slieve Miskish mountains and overlooks the spectacular Berehaven Harbour.

We are home to a multitude of artists, writers, artisan food producers, and craft makers. From pottery to cheese and wood turners to hand made soap, you name it, we have it. Many of these local foods and crafts can be sampled and purchased at our regular markets held on Bank Holiday weekends, the first Thursday of the month, and every Thursday in the summer months

Castletownbere is situated on the Wild Atlantic Way, a 2,500 km tourism trail along the west coast of Ireland. "Where land and sea collide, untamed beauty abounds.

Another stunning attraction right on our door step is The Beara Way. A walking route around the beara pensula that takes in many historical and archeological sites.
