Gleninchaquin, Parks in Kerry
Gleninchaquin Park half way between Kenmare and Glengarrif is an award-winning family owned park and farm in County Kerry. Some would say Gleninchaquin tops the list for Parks in Kerry. It is a long narrow coombe valley on the North West side of the Beara Peninsla.
The Park provides breath-taking landscapes and scenery in which it is a sheer delight to wander around. Explore streams with log bridges, mountain paths with carved steps, rock passages, glens, lakes and waterfalls. Marvel at the view overlooking the lakes, delicate green meadows, a spectacular 140 metre high waterfall, woodlands and Kenmare Bay. It is all framed by the Killarney McGillicuddy Reeks along the horizon.
This idyllic valley is perfectly suited for day outings with the entire family. Ample parking facilities are provided close to the waterfall and picnic areas. The walk routes around the waterfall, cascades, streams, woodlands and lakes are accessible for all ages. Also, feel free to bring your own lunch basket or enjoy our home baking, teas and coffee refreshments.
The park has six lovely short walks and nature trails, suitable for both children and adults.
Open from 10am each day, last entry is 5pm.

“This was hands down one of the best days out we had as a family. The trails are well signposted and the small bridges and little cottages are great fun for the kids. Make sure you bring a picnic and I would highly recommend it”
