Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Spent a lovely day exploring around Coomasaharn lake, in the hills behind Glenbeigh strand. We love looking for neolithic rock art and this part of Ireland is full of hidden places to find it. We decided to try and find the tiny dots on our map that indicated rock art in this area.
Some were easy to find and accessible, some we gave up on as set in deep bracken and bog, a couple we thought may have been deliberately covered by piles of smaller stones to prevent people being able to see them.
We were mindful that some were on private land and asked permission where we could. A Landowner was very helpful.
But it didn't really matter what we found or didn't as the landscape of huge valleys and hills was spectacular and beautiful to walk in and we enjoyed the easy walking. We parked in a lay by near the very few houses by the lake, in early July, hardly saw a soul. Its really worth getting off the main Ring of Kerry to the side roads to explore.

I live in the area. There are at least 400 neolithic stone carvings and peckings, fields visible underneath cut bogs, at least 1 cairn burial (that I fell into) but very few are aware so very little footfall. We actually have the most rock art in western Europe in the area. Very privileged to be surrounded by such history.

The Lake is the main attraction, Unfortunately i can't add my own location for the lake itself but this will have to do.

The Coomarasharm Lake is absolutely breathtaking. suitable for any age and is truly amazing.

You can simply walk down to the edge of the water and experience it that way but the truly remarkable way to view this mesmerising lake is to climb any of the hills surrounding it and view it from one of the amazing viewing points.

I plan on bringing a kayak next time.

The road is a little sketchy but keep going and you will come to an abandoned house where you can leave the car. 10mins outside Glenbeigh, Hidden Gem of the Kerry Way.

This rock art is 4000 years old and very accessible, if you know where to look. We were fortunate to meet a local farmer who had one of the inscribed stones in his field and he nicely let us in to have a gander. Remarkable to see artwork so old.
