My mother and I visited on a whim. We were so awestruck by the natural beauty of the park. It was only 5 euros per person for admission. The park is large, and is good for picnics, hikes, and walks. My only wish is that...More

We chose Gleninachaquin waterfall over Torc in Killarney. What a find. Lady at reception really friendly and lent me a walking stick free of charge. She also lent her own jacket to girls after us. We had a beautiful sunny October day.. the day before...More

Gleninchaquin Park is really stunningly beautiful. It really is a hidden gym and so well maintained and run. I had read some of the bad reviews and I felt compelled to 'set the record straight'. This hidden gym is well worth a visit and the...More

This place was one of the highlights of my stay in southwest Ireland. Starting with the stone circle on the way into the valley, hiking up to the famine cabin and through the sheep pastures, this valley was in a world of its own. The...More

We had the best ever walk/hike here, at this hidden gem. We felt that it was worth every cent of the €12, however I think it should be something like €12 max per car. Glad it’s not being ruined by coach tours. Eileen was extremely...More

Really enjoyed my walk up the mountain here and what a fantastic river and waterfall! The Famine house really pulled at the heart strings so well worth including this in the walk.

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.

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