  • As a faithful of the Beara Peninsula (coast road near Tuosist) I know very well the region. Gleninchaquin is a very pleasant with several levels of rides but the fact to pay for access to the spoils the fun a little park. You have a host of other beautiful corners (or more) and free... Do if you have already scoured the entire peninsula

  • We visited here in the afternoon and we're advised to take the red route. Bit of a hike but so worth it, as the views when we got to the top were breathtaking. Definitely worth the visit, and we will ...  more »

  • Went here for a look as I had rented a cottage near by. It was one of the most beautiful walks I have ever done got quite a few lovely photos and memories that I will keep forever. The staff where amazing even took my two kids out to see the newly born lambs in the shed, would definitely recommend to anyone. The road is bit narrow so really would not advise taking camper vans.
  • Visited this place while it was heavily raining. Although the weather (and our lack of hiking gear) precluded going for a proper walk or hike, the heavy rains made the waterfall spectacular. So I'd say it's worth going to go regardless of the weather!
  • Holly Irish countryside. Beautiful farm, beautiful waterfall.
  • This is an absolute MUST, if you visit Beara Peninsula. One of the two most interesting waterfalls in Ireland on a spectacular setting. The entrance fee is absolutely justified (6 €). There are loop walks to discover the stunning surroundings, pick-nick tables near the walk paths to eat your food and enjoy the views. I ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND! The access road is, like most side roads in Ireland, a bit narrow, but offers beautiful views and there are many places where you can pass other cars, if necessary.
  • This was my favorite part of my 21 day Irish adventure in 2014. I loved hiking the waterfall. View from the top looking toward the water is almost as lovely as looking up from the bottom towards the falls. I was so proud of my mother who also made the hike. It isn't an easy one. There is a hidden lake located near the trail on the way up to the top of the falls. We were there in late May. It was misty but lovely by the end of the day. I also really enjoyed the hike by the stream and the lovely garden. I can still remember the whole day vividly. Thank you for opening your home and working farms so we can experience nature's wonders. We stayed very nearby in a BEAUTIFUL privately owned cabin. Could see the cabin from the top of the falls. This was a once in a lifetime sort of happiness for me, but I hope to make it back soon. Thank you for bringing me so much joy!
