I found out that Dunboy Castle was one of the places where the O'Sullivans holed up back in the day so we went there. Then we decided we wanted to explore the whole peninsula as it was so beautiful. We discovered that Dursey Island off the tip of the peninsula was another place where the O'Sullivans lived back in the day. It was truly one of our favourite parts of Ireland. Another bonus is that it wasn't nearly as touristy as the next peninsula up - The Ring of Kerry.
Here are some photos of our trip around the Ring of Beara. There are quite a few....
