i visited it again and have the picture now on my smartphone startpage and marvel in it every time. there is a lot of people watching with you but it is really worth it, only a short walk from the parking lot.

Torc Mountain is an amazing place, with spectacular 360 degree view of Killarney town and lakes. It is accessible to almost everyone due to the clear paths and wooden sleepers on the mountain. One more charm of nature.

I did this twice, once the afternoon and it was a nightmare way to many tour groups. The next morning I got up at half 6 and ran it. I had all the views to myself and it was stunning. There had been a huge thunder storm the night before too so the waterfall was huge!!

Views of the waterfall are stunning and walk is very enjoyable. Be sure to bring proper walking shoes as the walk can be quite long if you follow some of the trails,

One of the best days out you could ever have. A climb that's within most people's capabilities... not too difficult and up and down in a few hours max. The view at the top on a clear day,that we were lucky enough to get, was absolutely unbelievable!!

You have to be quite fit to climb to the top of this but for me it wasn't worth the climb. The best part of the Waterfall is at the bottom!

This hike is amazing. Takes you back from the road and into the "woods". The waterfall is beautiful, and the trail not too difficult.
