Went to Gleninchaquin on friends recommendation. A good drive from Kenmare but worth it . The €6 entry fee also worth it with bearing in mind how well the owners maintain the entire estate. Did the red walk with our dog on a lead - c. 90 minutes plus . Fantastic views. There are longer walks - you can also... More

It is a series of graded loop walks around/by a waterfall. We tried 2 of them and they were very good. Timings were accurate and the signage easy to follow. The big thing here is the scenery. You are at the top of a series of mountain lakes that lead down to the Atlantic. Like all of the area, the... More

We arrived late in the day having just visited the beautifully sited Uragh stone circle. On leaving there we decided to see what the "Park" was like. I couldn't actually pass comment on that as we didn't even reach the car park before being accosted by a woman demanding 6E from each of us in the one car. I tried... More

Visited Gleninchaquin for a few hours one afternoon and thought it was absolutely beautiful. We did a walk of around 1 hour, but I would definitely love to go back and stay for longer. I found the man at the entrance to be very friendly and the lady further on near the map very helpful in suggesting a walk which... More

The Gleninchaquin Park is a fabulous place to walk with the family. There are a variety of trails from an hour walk to seven hours. As we were a mixed group, some split off to go on a more serious hike whilst the rest of us walked across the waterfall and down the valley - approx 11/2 hours. We had... More

I am rating this place as terrible purely because of the way we were greeted when we approached the Gleninchaquin carpark....A horrible little woman came to us, so afraid that we may have driven off without paying! She asked us where we were from, what we were planning to do, where we stayed etc then she said that there was... More

What a relief it was to read of similar, almost identical, and just as upsetting experiences of approaching Gleninchaquin Park on this Trip Advisor page. I returned from my holiday on – and first time ever visiting - the beautiful Beara Peninsula on Friday, 25th July and have been waiting since the 18th July to sit down and write my... More

We spent a wonderful morning here. My kids loved walking through the sheep fields to get to the waterfalls. They loved walking in the rocky streams below. We arrived earlier than most so we had the place to ourselves, as we were leaving more people arrived. Also visited the heritage house on site, worth the walk.

We visitied Ireland and made the happy discovery of Gleninchaquin for the first time 5 years ago (which we reviewed with photos). This June we returned to Ireland for 3 weeks -- now with our 2 adult sons, and we knew we had to come back to share the experience with them. On this trip we enjoyed some wonderful walks... More

Having travelled for five hours in horrendous weather from Rosslare we awoke next morning in Kenmare and wondered what to do for half a day before completing our journey to Iskeroon in Derrynane we spotted a leaflet for Gleinchaquin decided that we would visit the falls as they should be pretty full. They were simply spectacular, following the trail on... More
