Great woodland waterfall. No fee to visit and restrooms also available. The waterfall was amazing even though the water was not that plentiful. Tool some nice media on the woodlands path on the approach.

Visited the waterfall in early April. Stunning views with breathtaking waterfall. The recent storm damage to the trees was spectacular. There are great photos to be had of the scenery and the waterfall. Walk can be as short or as long as you wish to make it. This has to be a must in Killarney.

I would say this was a can't miss. Doesn't take very long, can hike to it or park and do a short 300 meter walk. Spectacular the day we were there (as their had been a lot of rain). If you are not in the area, don't go out of your way, but if you are close, take the 30... More

Stunning views, breathtaking waterfall, easy walkways, just wonderful! There are many photo ops along the way, but if like me you just want to take time to enjoy some of Irelands most scenic areas, then this walk is a must!

Beautiful waterfall. If you are visiting Muckross House, signs shows that the waterfall is 2,5km away. You don't have to walk there. There is a parking really close to the waterfall.

Exceedingly beautiful landscape as you hike past the green foliage that Ireland is so well known for. I have to admit that I took Walk Number 1 which really didn't require a lot of effort to reach the waterfall. There is something incredibly serene about the short walk, surrounded in beautiful mossy trees and rocks.

It was a very manageable climb. Safe, well-marked and nothing technical. 1500ft / 500m summit that seems like a balcony overlooking the Killarney region. Since you can see Torc Mountain from most of Killarney, it's great to do this hike early in your stay so afterward you can point to the top of the mountain and say, "That's where we... More

I completed a three hour hike to the peak of Torc Mountain. I must confess that toward the end of the climb my knees were a bit resentful but my brain and soul knew it was worth the physical challenge. The views of Killarney from the top of Torc Mountain was amazing and a must see.

The mountain walk is not for the faint hearted, there are many steps to climb but the sight of the waterfall made it worth it.

We loved everything about Torc waterfall and the guided walking tour. It was a splendid sunny morning ( one of the few that we had, but that's ok cause I liked the rainy misty weather) and this is a place that has to be seen to believe. Beauty beyond description!
