One word for Gleninchaquin... wow! We never heard of this amazing beauty until a bartender in Kenmare recommended it to us. We were unsure of what to expect, but we were far from disappointed. We are not enthusiastic walkers, but we were told the park...More

This little private area is a gem in Kenmare. Unfortunately, there is a possibility that it may close due to lack of funding and potentially not having someone available to maintain the upkeep. This seemed so tragic because out of all of the hikes we...More

Beautiful scenery, with a background of a tumbling waterfall. A place for walks, with most levels of enjoyment and difficulty. Usually quiet and unspoiled. Access is by a single tracked road, but very quiet and unlikely to meet other traffic.

Lovely park with views, lakes, walks and a stone circle. It’s a special area especially if you love unspoiled landscape.

When crossing the Healy Pass on our tour of the Ring of Beara the shop-owner there advised us to visit Gleninchaquin. The road leading to the park is quite narrow, but worth taking considering the beautiful park at the end! We decided to take a...More

I visited here on Tuesday. It is quite simply stunning. Friendly and helpful staff. The whole park is very well taken care of wothout losing its natural ruggedness.A truly restorative experience.

The site is reached by a narrow country lane just outside Kenmare. Caution is needed as there is little passing room and we even met the mad youth who was a boy racer or so it seemed. The site provides parking and has changing facilities...More

Some are. It depends on the ability of the child and also the ground underfoot. Wet weather increases the difficulty of some trails.
