The proprietor of the B&B we were staying in suggested we stop here to get off the tourist beat and it was an excellent suggestion. It's at the end of a one-track road, so drive very slowly! here is help in finding the turnoff from the main road (there's a small sign, easy to miss): if heading west on the... More

You need a good pair of shoes, to be a nanny goat and climb over the water falls. The views are lovely as always in Kerry. The tea rooms are quant....the waterfall wasn't more than a drizzle in Aug but should be stunning when gushing.

This was my third visit to Gelninchaquin Park, and I know it will not be my last. Gleninchaquin is a beautiful wilderness with spectacular scenery, and easy to follow safe hiking routes through a glaciated landscape of cirques, lakes and valleys. This private park is a bit of a drive along a very narrow road off the main Ring of... More

We went with our 3 kids (12,10,8). The track to get there is basic and single lane though the beauty of this is that there are no coaches here so it is truly peaceful and not at all busy. The scenery is beautiful...in my view it's better than the gap of Dunloe and way less touristy. Gorgeous walks for all... More

This was the most beautiful hike we have done. The couple that run it were so Lovely & advised that we did the red route which I would really recommend. It took an hour and a half with an ease level of about 4/5 for a fit person. The scenery was amazing. Really stunning. Hidden lakes .. bridges over waterfalls....... More

Just came back from this absolutely amazing piece of nature. Good introduction from a man at the entrance, where to go and which path we should take depending on skills etc. We did all walks except the orange one (7 hrs walk) and it was just mind blowing. All walks are marked perfectly. We did not loose track even once.... More

We went walking here at the start of August. We drove and were met in the car park by a guide who showed us the routes. We set off and the walking was not too strenuous but the views were amazing. We done the yellow route which took about the 4 hour mark with a small stop for a bite... More

Be prepared for the drive to Gleninchaquin as you feel you couldn't get more "out of the way". We were happy to pay the entry as places like these need upkeep, we really enjoyed following the walk signs and felt we had accomplished something at the end of it. There are walks for various abilities but the longer walks need... More
