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...

The long winding single-track road is an experience in itself, and adds to the magic when you get there. It's hard to describe the tranquillity once there (we were the only visitors at the time, though admittedly it was a November afternoon) - there is such a sense of space. We chose a 2-hour walk which went over the top... More

long narrow road in, be careful its worth it , standing stones on the way , spend some time there nice walks around the hills across bridge top of waterfall, easy stroll to waterfall from car park by road or alternatively over stiles across field thru the sheep , great touch of nature if you have children with you early...

This is the most colorful town in Ireland. Every building seems to be painted a different pastel color. Very quaint. Makes a great stop at the end of the Ring of Kerry drive....then you can head up into killarney National Park.

Ignore the people below who say the owners weren't friendly (they probably weren't friendly to the owners in the first place). The owners were absolutely lovely, and showed us around, served us tea, and even let us help them fix their fence :) Gleninchaquin was the highlight of our stay in Ireland, a magical place that I didn't expect to...
