We took a jaunting cart with horse from the Muckross House. Lots of people make the walk and I don't think it would be too tiring. We couldn't do it as we were traveling with a 3 year old toddler. The cart dropped us off at the bridge. We walked through the lovely mossy forest (AMAZING) and took the steps... More

Starting with a great waterfall then a well maintained trail up the valley. The trail opens up into a great wide open wind swept highland with more waterfalls. Then the real hike begins as you climb the steep narrow, well maintained trail up the side of the mountain. The weather is unpredictable, bring plenty of water, but very worth it.... More

The walk to the waterfall from the lakeside car parks is for just about everyone...it's a short uphill stretch that's all. To continue from the waterfall is more vertiginous, so if you're not feeling energetic, or you're simply not fit enough (and stopping is fine, we did, lots!) don't try it. There are three routes around the mountain, red, blue,... More

A lovely energetic climb to see the beautiful waterfall and the views over Killarney lakes. It has great path but some might find it strenuous

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.
