Overview
More
Small business. 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. 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. We do however take exception to people who flout our not unreasonable requests such as not paying and arriving assuming they can drive straight in, ignoring our signage. If this is your attitude then you are not at all welcome and will be politely but firmly told to leave. B McCabe.

We’ve been on this walk a few times and love to return. It’s a challenging 1.5 hour climb and walk. Magnificent views and mostly on a track. Lovely home made scones and tea can be had at end-taste so good!

Although it is a bit difficult to get to Gleninchaquin park, it is worth the effort of the narrow windy road once you get there. It was quite busy when we arrived but we were lucky to get a space to park and went into...More

Hi jbrover and thank you for taking the trouble to write a review. Indeed the routes this time of the year can be challenging and very wet underfoot. The trails are often quite wet even with spells of dry weather as the peat never fully...More
