Gleninchiquin Falls and the Uragh Stone Circle

by | Nov 23, 2008 | Travel

After driving through Killarney National Park we took a detour down to the Beara Peninsula to see Gleninchiquin Falls. I had emailed the private park a few days before we left but no one ever got back to me, so we had no way of knowing how much it was going to cost to get in.

Once we got to the turn-off, a small sign listed the “modest entrance fee” at 5 Euros. In general, we are not big fans of paying to see waterfalls and I think $6.25 per person is more than a modest fee but we decided to see how close we could get.

We had nice views of the large falls while navigating the narrow road past private farms, but ultimately we decided to turn around short of the entrance near the Uragh stone circle. Eric went traipsing uphill through a bog to get the following shot… and I am still trying to get the mud stains out of his pant legs.
