  • Gorgeous hidden gem, we took a really well sign posted route up past the top of the water fall and the views were beautiful. The road to the park is narrow but great to be out in such a peaceful spot
  • First of all: the people are very friendly and the hiking routes are very well marked and also very beautiful. Of course the owners comes out when you park the car there and ask for the money for entry. But do you have thinking about it that there were built bridges, handrails and stairways made of solid stones, which need to be maintained and repaired. Also, I didn't see any litter, which is often the case in Ireland.And the operators probably have to take out expensive insurance, as is normal for such parks in Ireland. That the road is narrow, yes that's true: But hey, if you can’t drive on a narrow road please give back your driver's license. It's safer for all of us. Several cars came towards me. Then you just go backwards or drive over the banquette if possible. Otherwise go to Dublin, there is a motorway for novice drivers. And people who complain about the waterfall for not being big: folks, this is pure nature. There is no tap that you can just turn on when a strange tourist comes along and is thinking the water is supposed to fall en masse for him. But I think if he wait for rain and goes after in this Park, the routes will be to slippery for him/her and he is blustering again. Nice Park. We will visit it again next time we are in Ireland. Greetings from Switzerland.
  • Lovely place to visit. Some great walks/treks. Kids get to walk through the farm field with the sheep grazing beside them. Staff were very helpful. Just be aware that it is cash only and bring some with you.
  • Very scenic place and very enjoyable hillwalking experience. If you are a bit fit I would definitely recommend walking around the waterfall. It takes around 2hours and kids enjoy it as well. It's steep in places but it's manageable.
  • Hidden beauty, remote, away from it all... So nice not to even have mobile coverage...a really fantastic agritourism park and well worth the €6 a head... In short...Go Visit, you won't regret. Well done to the owners... Will be back again & again
