We visited Gleninchaquin for a day of hiking on the recommendation of a few different locals. Yes, you do pay to go but it is not public property, so you are paying for access to the land which I felt was totally fair. If you are not comfortable paying for it, then don't go. I don't understand paying for entry... More

Its almost a year since I was at this "park" and paid €6 for the walk which is stunning but the rudeness of the owners and having to pay for natural beauty is beyond me.... I complained in writing to local tourist office but it obviously fell on deaf ears... I cannot understand how they are getting away with such... More

the scenery is stunning, the walking is mildly strenuous up the main part of the hike but very worth it. it is very worth the time to visit - the waterfall is also a highlight

The hotel we were staying in (Brook Lane Hotel) recommended checking out Gleninchaquin Park. We're so glad we did. The drive into the park was incredible in itself. Upon arriving at the park, Peggy met us immediately and helped us park. She was very nice and helpful and showed us which hike she would recommend for our family. The hike... More

The long drive past Cloonee Lakes up to the head of the valley is rewarded by this waterfall and the assorted walks. With fine weather this place is magical and well worth the 5 euro per person charge. The River Walk is a nice wind-down attraction too.

Very nice place, nice views but when we got in there, a woman came to us and said it was 5 euro per person to drive around the waterfall! We decided then that we would just stay in the car park for a few minutes- it's a long drive in there and we didn't want to have wasted our time.... More

Such a beautiful park! Siobhan from the Brook Lane Hotel in Kenmare recommended this park to us. We are so glad we made this stop. The drive from the main road to the park itself is a long, single lane dirt road. We met one car coming at us that we had to carefully maneuver around and a few sheep... More

The drive to this spot is some craic-- winding narrow sheep covered roads dipping and rising that seems to go on forever- I loved the drive in and luckily enough we only met one or two cars coming against me- when we got to the car park there was no one in reception and no made woman to chase us...
