Gleninchaquin Park 2017.

An Important Message.

I am very disturbed to read and hear of unpleasant incidents occurring at the entrance to Gleninchaquin.

I would urge you to contact me directly but equally I do not have a problem with you posting comments on Social Media etc.

I would like to know the time of day and a description of the person and the location, i.e. where along the route the incident/s occurred. It is important that I am armed with the facts to deal with this appropriately.

We know the person responsible but I do need your description, unfortunately  we are unable to be on hand 24/7. To those of you who have been treated in such a way I can only apologise unreservedly and wish to make it clear that our small team of Pete, John, Rita and Eileen absolutely abhor the behaviour of this individual.

The weather over Easter was very kind and I would like to thank all who visited and gave such lovely feedback. It means a lot to us. Temperatures have dropped but we hope for dry weather this coming Bank Holiday

Tom and Gerry are doing great and it is lovely to see the pleasure they give to our visitors.

(Ssssh, just to let you know, Tom and Gerry are two orphaned lambs we are hand rearing)

Major works have already taken place to enhance your experience of our beautiful park and to ensure your continued safety on our trails.

If you walking our trails we do appreciate any feedback as to the state of fences, rails, anything that could be a hazard.

After the severe gales in late February our Famine Cottage took a battering; however, we will be completely re-thatching later this year. This will be a unique opportunity to see such a process in operation and I will let you know dates when the work commences. 

Our Entry fees remain unchanged from 2016.

The full beauty of Gleninchaquin is hard to put into words come rain or shine so why not pay us a visit and see for yourself.

You are sure to have a day to remember.

Gleninchaquin Park provides breath-taking landscapes and scenery in which it is a sheer delight to wander around over streams with log bridges, mountain paths with carved steps, through rock passages, along glens and lakes to higher altitude. Marvel at the view overlooking the lakes, delicate green meadows, a spectacular rock face waterfall, it’s force dependent on the amount of rain of the previous days. This magnificent valley makes for a great day out for the experienced walker – high level routes, to those more inclined to the  gentler terrain. Ample parking facilities are provided close to the waterfall and the picnic areas. The walks around the waterfall, cascades, streams, woodlands and lakes are accessible for all ages. Please feel free to bring your own lunch basket or even a barbeque for a picnic within the park. Dogs are welcome too, just a little reminder to keep them under control when close to livestock but there are hundreds of acres to roam freely.

The image above gives an idea of the force of the Inchaquin Falls but we do advise this not the case everyday. Images within this site will show the falls on quiet days as well.

This idyllic valley is perfectly suited for day outings alone, with the entire family or as part of a group. The walk routes around the waterfall, cascades, streams, woodlands and lakes are accessible for all ages.

My thanks to Norman McCloskey for some of the images here on the website. When in Kenmare do drop by at his gallery on Main Street.

Gleninchaquin Park is steeped in history going back hundreds of years. People have lived in the valley for centuries. The recently restored famine cottage can give a glimpse into life as it was over 150 years ago.

Read all about the history in the Heritage section in greater detail.
