  • 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 »

  • A little piece of Heaven on earth. Such beauty and tranquility. John met us - lovely guy, local , very knowledgeable and clearly in love with the place. Waterfall and upper lake are worth the walk. Old farm restoration fascinating - went inside and can sense what it must have been like years ago. Very positive recommendation from us - we'll be back!
  • This is a picturesque area to visit for a walk. The road up is very narrow and windy but there are sign posts to help you avoid ending up on private land and the drive is enjoyable after you leave the main road. The tea room is comfy and on cold wet days they have a fire burning and there's gorgeous apple pie too.
  • 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.
  • Lived in Ireland for two years and this is one of the best places I've seen. The plus is that there were so few people during the hike, so it's basically the nature and you! Which is nice :)
  • Nice scenery but you won't get to enjoy it - we tried to park and some deranged woman charged up to our car, started banging HARD on the windows, screaming WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM, WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM. We were so taken aback and were literally speechless! She kept at it, completely deranged, thumping and clawing at the window. Obviously we weren't about to stay, even though we had our "modest fee" at the ready and our picnic packed, so we started to drive off as she continued to hurl abuse at us. Utterly shocking, baffling and thoroughly unpleasant, upsetting experience.
