This is the most colorful town in Ireland. Every building seems to be painted a different pastel color. Very quaint. Makes a great stop at the end of the Ring of Kerry drive....then you can head up into killarney National Park.

Ignore the people below who say the owners weren't friendly (they probably weren't friendly to the owners in the first place). The owners were absolutely lovely, and showed us around, served us tea, and even let us help them fix their fence :) Gleninchaquin was the highlight of our stay in Ireland, a magical place that I didn't expect to...

Our second visit to this magnificent place was this September. The colours, vividness of the light, discovery of new walks and most of all the kindness of Donal and Margaret Corkery its proprietors, made it a memorable finale to our short tour of the Beara peninsula. Many thanks!

Amazing day out. Breathtaking scenery. One of the nicest places I have ever seen. 5 different walks around the park to suit every level of walker, we did he yellow route(4hrs to do it), stunning views up over the waterfall and lakes and finished off with a beautiful river side walk trough a wood and ending in the sensory garden....

We were in Kenmare and our host at our B&B recommended we go visit this place. It is a very narrow winding road which takes about 20 minutes from downtown Kenmare (because you have to drive slowly). We arrived early (which was great because we had the whole place to ourselves) and were greeted by an elderly woman and she... More

We like to turn at the brown signs in Ireland that tell you something interesting is down the road. We were actually headed to the stone circle on the sign. There is small fee to keep the path up. The circle was great. Some hikers told us not to miss the park. Well, I am glad we turned. We arrived... More

This beautiful area is situated about in a valley approx 12 Km west of Kenmare off the Ring of Beara -Ardgroom- road. Access to the park is via a narrow single lane road with a few passing bays. Approx 3 Km along is situated an ancient neolithic stone circle and a placid lake (Lake Inchaquin) with parking nearby. No charge... More

We read the reviews prior to going and learned about the experiences of others with the 'evil woman' who makes you pay before you take pictures. This is also marked when you drive in. We arrived in late afternoon and walked up to the building so that we could pay and not be scolded, only to find it locked and... More

I am only sorry that I didnt read the reviews on here for Gleninchaquin Park. Had I read them I would have been well prepared for what was about to unfold on our visit here. After driving for 4 hours sight seeing we decided to have a look here to relax and take it easy for a few minutes. Little... More
