The Caragh River and the Behy River flow at either side of the village. The Ring of Kerry route runs through the middle of the village and many visitors like to stop and enjoy a leisurely stroll. There is a number of cafés and pubs in the village with pavement seating facilities in the warmer weather giving the place a very pleasant ambience.

There are a wide range of outdoor activities available in the area. Walking, bird watching, fishing, golfing, horse trekking on the beach or just relaxing, Glenbeigh has it all.

The mountain scenery here is magnificent, and the circuit of the hills from Seefin to Drung Hill, called the "Glenbeigh Horseshoe", part of the greater "Kerry Way Walking route", is one of Kerry's finest mountain walks. There is some fantastic bird watching to be had to the North of Glenbeigh, at Castlemaine Harbour and while you are there, you may also be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the Natterjack toad. There is trout fishing available on Lough Coomasaharn, the largest of the lakes, and the nearby Behy River.
