Glenbeigh Tidy Towns is a voluntary organisation who carry out many projects in the community to make it more attractive to locals and visitors alike. These projects and the ongoing work we are involved in are not possible without the time and effort of the Committee Members, the CE Scheme which we sponsor and the support of the people of Glenbeigh. Through our continued effort and determination we endeavour to continue our work in the community.
Our success in the Tidy Towns competition is dependent on the participation of the community council, home owners and local businesses united together. We believe that with a positive attitude and a little help from everyone we can top our category, improve the character of our lovely little village and thus encourage every single tourist to stop here. Our points are increasing every year.
lenbeigh has become well established as the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the Ring of Kerry. The Ring of Kerry in many ways is an artery, from the rest of the country that feeds life to the village and locality. It is a tourist attraction known world-wide and each and every visitor who sets out on the expedition of the Ring of Kerry is funneled through the quaint beautiful village of Glenbeigh. This has very obvious advantages from a tourist and economic point of view with visitors stopping to avail of the shops, pubs, cafes, restaurants and varied forms of accommodation available in the area.
Indeed there are many tourists down through the years who stumbled upon Glenbeigh while traveling the Ring of Kerry and who have since returned over and over again – many making it their second home.
