Pet Friendly Gleninchaquin Park
Gleninchaquin Park We are a working sheep farm but combine this with several great trails ranging from a gentle meander around the pastures, a stroll along the river and the falls and on to mountain trails taking anything from 2 to 7 hours. We welcome 'Fido' and only ask that he/she/they are kept on the lead close to the livestock. Once out on the open trails then its 'away you go'.Our website has details of all the walks. Bring a picnic, spend as long as you like. A lovely day for all ages and Fido will love it. Lots of water and so much space. We are just 35 minutes drive from Kenmare, Co. Kerry. See Details

You will also encounter other people with dogs in the park and mingling is very easy as you get to talk about pets and almost everything.
