Nice place with a beautiful river walk and waterfall. We did the yellow walk and it is challenging. Best to take walking poles and not much else. Was very wet in parts so hiking boots a real must. Well marked but best done on a decent day as you do have to climb. The road to the park is very... More

Did the grade 4 (red walk) just stunning amazing day. Staff couldn't have been nicer & more helpful €6.00 entry is pittance for what you experience.

A must-do when visiting Kenmare and surrounding area. Very well run park with many walks/hikes to suit all levels. Owners were very welcoming, informative and most helpful ensuring we got the best out of the park between rain showers and our young baby. The routes were well marked out and there were spectacular views from the vista point. Definitely recommend... More

An awesome sight. The walk for anyone who goes hiking in the Alps is not so challenging but a must. In some ways more beautiful than the Niagara, which is majestic and awesome, but somehow too big to capture in photos. The secret garden tea room above the reception (50 meters up the road) is a must.

Spent a beautiful afternoon hiking over the waterfall with our children aged 10 and 8, who after some initial reluctance to walking up the hill loved it and want to go back and do the next grade up. Some way off the beaten track with sheep on the road and a narrow track but so worth it, we are planning... More

After an amazing journey to get there, we were met by a lovely man and his wife. They explained the walks and talked about the beautiful area. We climbed above the waterfall with our children. It is the highest hill/ mountain they have climbed. ( living in a flat part of the country means they hadn't had a chance to... More

This has to be the most beautiful place in Ireland. The walks, the views, the atmosphere, it really is magical. It is about 4 kms off the beaten track down a narrow road where you have to stop to allow sheep to cross and pray you don't meet an on coming car! We had beautiful scones, cakes and teas in... More

We went on a very well laid out walk up over the waterfall. It took an hour and a half. Really well marked. We had forgotten to take our walking sticks and they would have been convenient for one or two spots! A fabulous place and well worth the drive into the far reaches of the valley!

A bit of a drive off the main road down a narrow road, but well worth it. Beautiful scenery, great loop walk and waterfall. The small café served some lovely homemade scones and were lovely, friendly people.

Absolutely amazing place, really a must if your in the area! Unbelievable natural beauty; a waterfall, lakes and a winding river! Several walks to chose from ranging from 30mins to 7 hours!
