Magnificent scenery, beautiful walks - the full trip over the fall is not as arduous as one may think - take it slowly and the views are most rewarding. After a wet spell the waterfalls are particularly exciting. The tearoom at the adjoining property (not advertised) is a very worthwhile stop. Eileen and Tom's hospitality is lovely.

If you are a walker or nature lover, then visit Gleninchaquin Park. Wear walking boots and bring rain gear (just in case!). It is wild and remote and stunningly beautiful. Children will love to explore and under 12s are free. Bring a picnic and allow 2 - 3 hours for the visit, so as not to rush the experience.

this was a very meaningful and incredibly beautiful stop. The owners are so warm and lovely. We enjoyed the trip in, the gorgeous grounds, and a very interesting sheep shearing demonstration. It is a must see attraction if you get to this area! Highly recommended.

I was just at the waterfall park today with my parents and could not believe the scam that you people are playing on folks! When we pulled in, we were not sure why the lady was meeting us right in the car park, but we got out and We paid our €6/adult. The only thing we feel we got for... More

Christy, I’m Peter PR and other roles at Gleninchaquin. My days are long and varied and now it is the office and the PR stuff. You have already received this through another media platform. You have made your feelings known and I am sending this through Trip Advisor to redress the balance via your very vitriolic comments, I'd like others... More

This place is gorgeous. Rustic, natural and unadorned. The proprietors were great; 1) We did not have any EUR cash, just GBP. They let us pay in GBP and gave us EUR change. 2) My wife had recently broken her toe, and they drove us up to the scenic vista so we could still see it. They did this completely... More

Great scenery. Fresh air. Excellent waterfalls. Varied walks. Dogs very welcome but must be kept on a lead because of all the farm animals.

I can only concur with the comments of others concerning the insane behaviour of a man who appears to be the owner of Gleninchaquin Park. This is nothing about an entry fee, which I believe may well be worth it under different circumstances. Our first visit to Ireland and fantastic up until today. We were taking a leisurely drive around... More

I have spoken with the owner of Gleninchaquin Park. I posted an interim reply to you on June 7th, 'not sure if you received it. I am led to understand that the gentleman you first met had advised you that The Park is private land and an entry fee is payable. I understand you decided not to stay. At this... More

We had read reviews of people complaining about the troll demanding 6 euros - so went prepared with our entrance fee. The owner was very welcoming and when we gave her our money she advised us on the best routes available. The waterfalls were dramatic, the heritage bothy amazing and the views across the hill parks and lake were stunning.... More

My brother & I are on holiday and went to this park from the suggestion of our B&B host at Kenmare Eco Lodge B&B - we are beyond THRILLED she told us about it as this hike has been the highlight of our trip!
