Eyries is a small village that I passed through, when driving the narrow ring-road of Beara-peninsula south of Kenmare. Eyeries (in Gaelic it is called Na hAoral) is about 10km north of Castletown-Bearhaven. It was great to see all of these colorfull houses there, mainly pubs and guesthouses, Bed & breakfasts etc.
In Eyeries I even saw a tourist-bus from the Netherlands last time and I really cannot imagine, how it managed to get there on these small coastal-roads on Beara Peninsula.
I once had to drive slowly behind a group of cows & a bull, who did not want to leave the road for several kilometers, because there were the stone-fences at each side of the road and my car was heavy and loud, filling almost the full width of the road. The situation escalated, when a motorcycle came the other way - see my pictures !
