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

They were simply spectacular, following the trail on... More

My husband and I drove to Gleninchaquin Park to enjoy an "off the beaten path" hike. It was spectacular! When you first arrive a woman will collect your money and she isn't interested in being all that helpful and only interested in making sure she is paid, so pay her quickly, pick a trail to take, and head out. Don't... More

The falls are breathtaking and the hiking paths are so well maintained. The famine cottage is haunting. There are so many different things to see.

“A Well Kept Secret” - “The Secret Garden Tea Room” We had a fantastic walk in the mountains the views were second to none, beauty at its best. We discovered ”The Secret Garden Tea Room” very appropriately named, this is run by a charming couple Eileen & Tom, as we approached we got the aroma of home baking. When we... More

Beautiful scenery, like something out of a movie. I found the lady friendly and helpful and enjoyed a pleasant conversation. The restored cottage across the valley is worth a visit. It is a quiet place for a contemplative walk. We mostly had the place to ourselves and stayed longer than we planned simply because we could not pull ourselves away... More

I guess I don't understand the comments concerning the owners of this park. I found them to be lovely people and extremely helpful. We were there on a bright sunny day and there were plenty of cars and one bus but the property is so big that you feel alone. Everything is exceptionally well signposted and easy to navigate your...

The scenery is unrivaled in this corner of Ireland. After a nice peeaceful walk what could be better than a lovely cup of tea or coffee in the newly opened tea rooms aptly named THE SECRET GARGENS TEAROOMS. It is run by Tom and Eileen and if it is a warm welcome your after then this is the place you... More
