Anything I could say about the beauty of this place is obliterated by the poisonous behavior of the owner. As others, we turned up late in the day to check out the place for a future visit. With a car close behind us, we didn't stop to read the signs. The initially friendly greeting of the woman owner quickly turned... More

A gem - but like other reviewers stated the guide seemed to want to keep it a secret! Most relaxing, welcoming and friendly home. The Gleninchaquin along with the Tea Rooms definitely worth a visit and the 5 mile drive off the main road. You will not want to leave.

The prices on the website were different to the prices we were charged when we arrived and it was quite expensive. It's located very far off the main road so be prepared for a windy, dangerous road. It's absolutely stunning though and well worth the trip. Such amazing views! I've been once and I don't think il go again (there... More

This was my worst tourist experience in the 10 years I've been traveling Ireland far and wide. From afar, the place looks idyllic, but if you take the road heading that way be sure you want to stay to explore the park, cause suddenly the public road ends, and you have no way to turn your car around without touching...

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
