this is one for the avid walker as its uphill all the way and not always smooth but the end product is well worth it, one of natures unspoilt beauty spots and a must if you are in Kerry

The walk is cleverly designed to guide you easily from carpark up a relatively straightforward climb to a magnificient and breath taking view. It takes perhaps 2-3 hrs from start to finish, and we saw a variety of age groups, young and old on the route. We will certainly do this walk again.

Have been to Killarney National Park but never visited but since it was the low season it was not crowded and the walk was leisurely and the view amazing. Glad we did it!

the waterfall is easy to access if you don't want to walk far, only a 5minute walk but definitely worth it. also good for walks with different varying lengths from easy to hard.

This is worth a stop. Nice easy walk through the woods to the waterfall where you can take some great pictures and take in the scenery. Take a jaunting cart to Muckross house and gardens as well.

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
