Visiting Ireland for the first time from the states, there is plenty of hiking and beautiful views of the mountain ranges. This walk is incredible and truly breathtaking.

We really enjoyed our hike up Torc mountain. It's relatively easy going, there were people with their kids of all ages doing it. I'd recommend starting early though as it gets busy and depending on your walking pace it can be inconvenient. Again, amazing views and scenery!

The waterfall is a very pretty sight, worth the short walk, just a couple hundred yards or so from lower car park. Great place to take a selfie 😉 the walk which goes in a loop is more intense as the steps after the waterfall become quiet steep for some time with uneven steps. Good sturdy shoes needed.

It's really pretty and a good little walk, it's not a far walk to the waterfall. Why I wasn't impressed was the amount of tourists in this small area was overwhelming. They were yelling and chatting and jumping around in front of the water, it was impossible to get a good picture or even stand in peace for a minute... More

We climbedTorc on a beautiful April day. It is very well marked with sleepers on the paths and it is a lovely climb. We met some charming people at the top and we could see all over Killarney. it is well worth the effort.

The waterfall was a very pretty sight. Just a couple hundred yards or so from lower car park. Killarney shuttle bus waits for 15 minutes at car park so you can visit falls and take pictures without having to walk out or wait for another bus.

Very nice little walk. The falls are quite pretty and the climb not very steep. The bathrooms were nice for a park.

The Torc waterfall was fantastic! But the walk was grueling!! We opted to do the moderate walk....my legs got quite the workout that afternoon! I wish the signs were clearer...we weren't sure if the trails were circular-we ended up just getting to a point and turning back. The climb down was more treacherous though.
