Overview

We are a small business, principally running a commercial sheep farm. We also have a passion for nature, the countryside and conservation. We embrace both business & tourism in an effort to make your experience of Ireland a memorable one. Agri-Tourism, Eco-Tourism, we warmly welcome you here. We are a private park, we maintain everything at our own expense which is why we make a small charge on entry. There is much of Kerry that is inaccessible, our park offers access through well maintained paths together with facilities as you may expect at any attraction. Washrooms, wheelchair access and much more. All of this takes funds to maintain and to enhance your experience here on Beara.

The road is very narrow, but well worth the effort to get there. We had the park to ourselves and really enjoyed walking through the sheep pastures. The operator was extremely helpful and informative. It was an absolutely beautiful walk. We would have enjoyed walking...More

Our B&B owners at Sallyport strongly urged us to head to Beara rather than Ring of Kerry, and specifically recommended this hiking park. It was by far our favorite day of the 5 we spent in Kenmare. It was drizzly and cloudy but had interesting...More

Wonderful, knowledgable guide present, who advised us to take the mountain trail up, to the top of the waterfall and down. Since my mother had some difficulty hiking, she got two walking sticks to help her. Go for a coffee and apple pie before setting...More

Despite the long drive on a most narrow road, it is well worth the effort to find this beautiful spot. The scenery is breathtaking. Not sure how accessible it would be for stroller or wheelchair.More

This is nature so today's visit was clearing misty/cloudy and the main waterfall was fabulous but not the thundery, spray-everywhere torrent that we have also experienced.

We went to Gleninchaquin park after reviews on TA and it was well worth the visit. The drive out is on real country roads in the Beara peninsula until you end up in the remote park. The walk takes about an hour to 90 minutes...More
