We go to Kerry regularly and have done the ring of Kerry and Dingle peninsula often and thought the scenery amazing but the Beara peninsula and in particular this park was outstanding. We only had a few hours to spend here but we will return and spend a whole day here in the future. The owner showed us around and... More

We visited this park on a wet cloudy morning in August. We were greeted at the car by the owner & paid our entrance fee - 5euro for adults, dog went free! She gave us a lot of information about the hikes and sent us up to the waterfall. Lucky for us as soon as we parked the car the... More

We dropped in on a day visit from Kenmare. Spectacular views and quite a few walks (and a Megalithic stone circle). It's basically someone's farm that they have turned into a tourist site so signage and facilities aren't fantastic but there is a good map with the walks set out on it. I wouldn't say it has been sensitively developed... More

The walk up over the waterfall is fantastic - make sure to have a good pair of hiking boots as it is wet most of the route. Signage could be better along the way. There are colour coded stakes in the ground and many of the signs need to be repainted. They charge €5 per person in. Tea rooms at... More

This amenity has been developed sensitively over the years and in the past year they opened th 19thCentuary Cottage for viewing. I visited today with 3 children and we had a... More

One of the most scenic parts of Ireland that we encountered on our two week tour, this park definitely deserves a spot on your ireland tour. Located on the beara peninsula, south of the popular ring of kerry, this park is perfect for an afternoon of hiking. The most obvious highlight is the stunning waterfall but take the hike up...

We visited Gleninchaquin on the way to Kenmare on a wet and rainy day. We had 2 small children and a 6mth old baby and were not sure what the park had to offer as it was our first time there. We followed the signs and took the long narrow road. When we arrived at the car park it was... More
