We love visiting Glentenassig whenever we are down in Kerry. It is such a fabulous beauty spot- with a wonderful boardwalk all around the upper lake. It also has picnic tables so bring your packed lunch with you. The drive up there from Castlegregory is...More

Bit of a drive to get up to it but well worth it. Beautiful walk around one of the lakes. Before going we were told it had a boardwalk around it. It was brilliant! Basically planks held together. It was safe and adventurous for the...More

Stunning scenery, very remote, quiet location - even during the busy tourist season. Well worth the short drive from Tralee or Castlegregory. Many trees have been removed from certain portions of the park as it appears that swaths were sick or dying. The remaining forest...More

What the heck is going on here! gutted I've been visiting Glentenassig woods near Brandon Bay/CastleGregory annually for some time (in between surf sessions when in area) and I went up to for a stroll in June 2017, to cool off in the good weather...More

Great walk through the forest at the first lake (Buggy friendly!), the wooden walkway was less accessible with small children. Great setting for a picnic and Gruffalo hunting! Worth a trip!

Beautiful landscapes, great views! Hard to get there but it's worth it. Don't forget to wear comfortable shoes and enjoy exploring lakes, forest and even having picnic with presence of nature.
