Leaving Annascaul at 09:00 we drive to to Kenmare and out the Tuosist road for about 9 miles. Then we turn left, inland along a narrow winding road for four or five miles to the parking area at Gleninchaquin. Charge is €6 for adults and €5 for seniors. Groups of 10+ are charged at €5 each.
There are several marked walks around Gleninnchaquin. All are circular walks in the hills circling the valley and lakes.
There are three attractive walks for us in Gleninchaquin. The short one is the Over the Waterfall Walk which takes about two hours, the second is the walk described above and the third is a much longer walk called the Boundary Walk which is 9 miles or 14.5 KM and takes seven hours. This is the walk for the “A” walkers.
