Overview

We are a small business, principally running a commercial sheep farm. We also have a passion for nature, the countryside and conservation. We embrace both business & tourism in an effort to make your experience of Ireland a memorable one. Agri-Tourism, Eco-Tourism, we warmly welcome you here. We are a private park, we maintain everything at our own expense which is why we make a small charge on entry. There is much of Kerry that is inaccessible, our park offers access through well maintained paths together with facilities as you may expect at any attraction. Washrooms, wheelchair access and much more. All of this takes funds to maintain and to enhance your experience here on Beara.

After a very long drive up a narrow single-carriage-with-passing-places lane, you eventually reach the waterfall. The notice promises 'a modest fee' but 6 euros per adult (ie 24 for us) was just too pricey for a nice (but not special) waterfall and park. We were...More

Hiking the beautiful forests, waterfalls and cascades. So lovely. The sheep were cool. The tea and snacks at the little cottage were lovely. Thank you. A true gem.

When traveling in Ireland, we were advised to travel the Beara Peninsula instead of the Ring of Kerry - we don't like tourist buses, crowds and the "attractions." We traveled all around the peninsula and the next day, we returned to Gleninchaquin, a stunning park...More
