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.

Blarney Castle

Blarney Castle is both a park and castle. While dogs are not permitted into Blarney Castle, they are allowed to enter the park. You can walk around the park with your pup all day and then tie him up when you enter the castle to learn its history and kiss the stone. The park surrounding Blarney Castle is huge and offers an array of landscapes and trails for you and your dog to investigate. Enjoy!
