Easy walk to waterfall but more strenuous if you want to go further with lots of steep steps. View worth it in the end, sunny day looking out over Lakes of Killarney. Definitely need to get fitter though.....

There are some amazing views from the mountain, along with a beautiful waterfall hidden in the mountain. Warning some parts of the trail can be very steep and challenging

Myself & my husband did this walk today & I was ashamed to say as a Kerry woman that it was my first time up torc mountain. It was magnificent, relaxing, enjoyable & such impressive views. A very manageable walk for all abilities. A must see for people of all ages. It certainly won't be my last time.

My wife and I walked this mountain path on the first day of our honeymoon, and it was the perfect start to a great holiday in Kerry. The first half of the walk takes in the Torc waterfall (which is impressive but was very busy with tourists, even in September) and then loops around to follow the river upstream along... More

We walked to the Torc waterfall and climbed Torc mountain in glorious sunshine - the views were magnificent. An easy walk for the most part but there is the option of a pony & trap ride for the less energetic.

It was so beautiful and strange at the same time. The green mossy landscape was hard to capture on film so lush... The waterfall was a lovely end to our short hike.

This is a lovely walk through the trees long side a rushing stream. Bit of a climb to the top but worth it

The Torc waterfall is along several bike/hiking trails in Killarney National Park, and it's a definite must-see. You need to park your bike to walk to the waterfall, but it's a short 5-min hike.

The walk around around and to this place are very enjoyable. Especially if you have kids. They will absolutely fall in love and want to walk around all over the place. There are a few different trails to take and they stem from Moderate walking to lots of walking. We took all of them and they were all great.
