This is a beautiful park - perhaps among the most beautiful scenery we saw in the west of Ireland. The ability to hike it makes it even better. We were lucky enough to be there on a blue sky day in October - just stunning.

We visited Gleninchaquin in August, what a wonderful trip it was. The location is wonderful , after a long winding drive we came to the start of the walk up to the waterfall. There is parking and picnic areas and tables. The walk itself is...More

I have visited the stone circle below Gleninchaquin several times before and know it to be magical and a very special place; the second stone circle - higher up on the hillside - is worth the climb. The views are stunning and we visited in...More

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

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

I haven't walked round the waterfall but I would say it's easy to spend at least half a day looking at the stone circles etc and walking by the falls. Enjoy if you go - it's a magical place.

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