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.

We visited this place on a visit to County Cork. It was easy to find and we managed to get parked, even though it was busy. This place is stunningly breathtaking. Despite the amount of people that were visiting, it still had an air of serenity and calm. It’s a perfect place to do meditation. The small church was lovely & there are candles inside which you can pay to light. As well as the church & lake there are many forest walks. Definitely a beautiful place to visit.

The forest park is a lovely place to walk. There are many different mature firs of stupendous height, and there are different trails for different abilities - some on roadways, one strenuous. The red walk is the strenuous one. We joined it at the far end up the valley. Probably easier to start nearer the lake, as it is easier to up the scree and down the steps. Whatever, it was very enjoyable.

Very special spiritual place. You don’t need to be religious to experience the solitude and uniqueness of this place. I’m not religious but I know it’s a special place in natures design of our universe.

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.
