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.

One of the best hidden gems in Ireland. From the beautiful setting to the incredible food Gougane Barra is a 5 star experience. The dining in particular is second to none - amazing! The staff couldn’t be nicer and more welcoming. Would highly recommend to anyone for a nice getaway. We will be back!

A truly amazing place. So beautiful. A lovely place to wander and a great spot to grab a cuppa and some home cooked goodies.

This was my first time here in June 2022. The first thing that struck me was the fresh air, so clean and fresh. It is breathtaking. It is tucked away near the mountains between Bantry and Kenmare. We had the most wonderful walk here with amazing views and echoes . We were just blown away with the fresh air and view. This is such a special place.

Fantastic visit from Killarney. Only about a 50 min drive. Found out about this from some random local at the bar and it turned out to be a home run. Total Instagram worthy visuals! Hikes were great, the church was amazing and the overall experience was incredible.

Wasn't sure to what to expect when we decided to visit here. But so glad we did. Simply breathtaking, you get overcome with a real sense of calm and peacefulness especially if you get there early and you get the place to yourself. Lovely lady greeted us in the gift shop. Don't forget your bottle to collect some blessed Holy water from the Holy well and natural spring water.

Truly a special place to relax in a peaceful place. We stopped while we where in west cork on a friends recommendation. We had a coffee and walked around for around 45 min. Very much worth the visit especially to see all of Irelands top toilet just made it brilliant

This establishment is really a little but of heaven on earth. The location is perfect and this coupled with the professionalism of Neil Katy and their staff as they welcome their guests has to be seen /experienced to be believed. Amazingly perfect.

Highly recommend for wild & beautiful scenery tucked in a lush valley at the edge of the mountains! Think Virgin River with its sharp crags, high pine forests and panoramic views sweeping down the lake. Trails to suit all abilities. Spotless public toilets. Great signage and tree identification posts. An ideal location to park & picnic. We did a couple of trails but the “Slí na Sléibhe” (2.5kms, 2hrs, strenuous) is the most majestic of all the trails in the park – high into the mountains with spectacular views & highly recommend! Delighted to find where the majestic River Lee rises, flowing to Cork Harbour about 90Km away where we’ve been staying during our holiday. Steeped in history, the tiny island at the edge of the lake at the entrance to the Forest Park where Saint Finbarr, patron saint of Cork, founded his early Christian monastery in the 6th century.

You’ll need €5 in coins to pay on car park entry but we just parked along the route (without causing obstruction) and added another 700m to our lovely walk!

Great trails through the beautiful woods. Lovely way to spend a hot Sunday in a slightly less hot forest. Very accessible and well maintained.
