Sheen Valley Heritage Area

The Sheen Valley Heritage Area stretches from the picturesque town of Kenmare in Co Kerry to the Caha Pass that leads through the Kerry tunnels into West Cork.  It comprises 80 square km of breathtaking beauty and amazing history.  The valley has one of the greatest concentrations of historical and prehistoric monuments in Western Europe.  A network of scenic walks and cycling routes throughout the valley take in many of these unique sites. A guidebook to the Sheen Valley Heritage Area is available to purchase in local outlets including Molly Gallivan’s Craft Shop, and at http://bonane.com.
