FAQs


Are there facilities for those with mobility issues ?

Yes, there is access to washroom facilities for those with mobility issues.

Also, if you would like closer views of the waterfalls you may drive further in and park close by. Please check for details at the lower car park. There are plenty of areas to sit and just enjoy the views and have your refreshments.

We are also happy to drive you in our 4 x 4 to higher, less accessible areas for you to enjoy more great views. We are unable to take a wheelchair in our vehicle so you must be able to sit unaided. Please let us know your wishes and we will do everything we can to assist you.

Can I bring my dog ?

Dogs are very welcome here at Gleninchaquin. We ask that they are kept on the lead on the lower levels  close to the livestock but generally they will be able to roam freely. There are dog passes at some of the stiles to enable them to get through fences to the next enclosures.

I hear the road to Gleninchaquin is quite narrow, what is the largest vehicle that can drive there ?

The road to Gleninchaquin from the R571 is narrow in places. A 35 seater coach is the largest vehicle that can get access. Campervans are fine but a towed caravan is not possible for safety reasons. There are numerous passing places along the way. Take it steady keep your speed slow and you will be fine.
