The Kenmare Bay is 30 miles long, 12 miles wide at its mouth and narrowing gradually as it bisects and separates the Beara and Iveragh peninsulas and their mountain ranges, the Kenmare Bay due to its shape has in the past been referred to as the Kenmare River. It is very accessible along its length with many harbours, inlets and creeks providing shelter for seafarers through the ages whether they were Viking longships, Spanish galleons, British men-of-war or the modern Irish Naval Fleet.
The Bay offers good fishing.
