A mountain worth visiting! After Carrountoohil this mountain didn't disappoint us at all. With a average stamina you'll be fine and you won't have any problems making it to the top. It can be nice to climb up the mountain (at the last part) left from the lake and descent on the other side down. Leave early in the morning... More

There are three parts that made this hike so magical. The trail was in exceptional condition, the forest was vibrant, and the hike is off the beaten path. Trail - As others have said there are wooden rails forming a solid pathway for parts of the trail that are muddy. The wooden rails are 18 inches wide and covered in... More

Great walk for families. Easy to find. The path is slatted with wooden planks nearly all the way up and it covered in chicken wire. Would still recommend a good pair of walking boots for support. Lots of bigger dogs on the walk too! The top of the mountain is freezing so have a spare jumper. Great lookout at the... More

The torc falls, when we where there were incredible. Our driver said they were angry and he was right. The walk to the falls was brilliant.

Great place to bring kids who can get to the top (if 6 and over) Even though it was raining due to the canopy of the forest we didn't get that wet. They have now added clean and kept ablution block at the bottom which is great!

Great hike! Very intense if you begin at the west side, but it provides an excellent northerly view of Muckross Lake, Lough Leane, and the town of Killarney. A 2 hr hike (overall) at a moderate pace. The east end of the trail ends at Torc Falls which is a great place to relax.

Torc waterfall is near to Muckross House. There is a car park at the entrance. It is free to visit the waterfall but wear sturdy shoes. Upon leaving the car park, turn left and follow the sign to the waterfall. It takes about 20 minute and is slightly uphill. The waterfalls are amazing. At the waterfall there are steep steps...

A really beautiful waterfall and walk along side it. Although 'mountain' walk this isn't hard as there is good path. A 'not to be missed' sight.
