Gleninchaquin – More than just a walk in the park!

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. Come to learn of the Heritage of Gleninchaquin.

Glenichaquin is the perfect place to explore the abundance of ornithology, botany and geology that is unique to the area. School and college tours are more than welcome to come.

You are sure to have a day to remember.

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.
