Wherever you look, as you hike here, the views are splendid. Some of them take your breath away. And as you finish your hike, you have the choice of walking along the river back to the car park. A beautiful meandering route that winds beneath the trees. Magical!

There is 11th century cottage and a small lake At the end of the walk there is a little Red Tea Room with fantastic atmosphere and the best scones... More

Found this great place to walk on an overcast day. Met at reception by several helpful people one of whom took us to the outside large map of the area and talked us through the options. We went for the 115 min walk over the waterfall. In fact despite the fact that we thought we were going slowly it took... More

We went here today after reading some of the Tripadvisor reviews. We paid 15 Euros for two adults and two children. It should have been slightly more, but the man charged less for the two children. We did the waterfall hike, which took about 1.5-2 hours (only 4km) but uphill for half of it. It was absolutely stunning and we... More

We went to Gleninchaquin Park, a privately owned park/ sheep farm, near Kenmare. It was incredibly beautiful, really different from the other areas we had seen in Kerry County. The views of sheep on the hillsides was pastoral and gorgeous, and dominating the whole place is the incredible 448 foot waterfall, which was really rushing full with water thanks to... More

My son and his friends from the UK walked over the mountain from the North to this waterfall and were threatened by the owner that if they did not return the way they had come he would 'fetch his gun'. Fortunately he was outnumbered and they called his bluff but it was an extremely unpleasant experience for visitors who had... More

Thank you for your comments to which I am giving due consideration. I am sending this as an interim reply. I have left it for sometime to think things through as it is disappointing to read such things. Having said that:- I note what you say, and my colleagues 'alleged' wording to your son and his friends. I also note... More

This is one of the most gorgeous places in the west of Ireland--waterfalls, lakes, landscape, and a restored 19th century farm. A great place for a stroll or a demanding hike. It's about 30 minutes from Kenmare on the Beara peninsula.

Three of us stopped here at the advice of some locals who had befriended us. It's a gorgeous place with great trails -- some easy, some hard; some short, some long -- and stunning scenery. The interactions we had with staff were friendly and informative. The fee is nominal. We were there in mid-September and had the huge expanse almost... More

We absolutely loved this privately owned park. There are various walks you can take based on your physical abilities. It is a great way to spend a peaceful part of your day. We went to the secret tea room and weren't disappointed. A tasty end to a beautiful morning.

We did the over the waterfall hike, part of the group walked the farm with and had a great time. The people were so friendly and accommodating the gentleman took part of our party up the side of the mountain and called his sheep. What an awesome place and people, highly recommended!
