“Beautiful park with great walks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Well worth a visit, especially on a sunny day. The park has a number of walking routes; with varying levels of difficulty. St. Finbarr's Oratory is one of the most beautiful places in Ireland.
You can avoid the car park charge in the park by leaving your car at the Gougane Barra Hotel or Cronins Bar (great for a soup & sandwich); it's a very short walk into the park from there.

“Lovely walks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

If you are lucky to have good weather here it is a lovely place to walk or stroll around and even when it is dull and misty the little Church and the surrounding area is well worth a visit
