Most reviewers here are mistaking the fairly pedantic Torc Waterfall stroll for the hike to the summit of Torc Mountain. Don't miss this hike. Take a left turn immediately after the entrance to Muckross House and follow the road for around a mile to the car park. There is a track all the way but come prepared - the Kerry... More

Torc Falls are beautiful and if you walk to the top the views are fantastic.I can be a little misty up by the falls so bring a jacket.

This is a stunning walk - we did the easy yellow walk which, although quite steep in places was very do-able for most able-bodied people. If you did not feel up to the walk you could just visit the waterfall which was a few minutes walk from the carpark. It was really beautiful and well worth going to see.

The climb up the dude of the waterfall is quite steep but well worth the effort. The walk is about 40 mins and the views are superb. We walked to and from Muckross House to extend the walk & really enjoyed the variety. Would recommend good walking shoes.

This waterfall is at the end of a nice, well kept path and was easy to access. I found it to be a great waterfall to practice long exposures as a beginner photographer. There is a nice canopy of trees, and the setting was beautiful when I went in September.

we only had time to walk from the Muckross House to the waterfall. It is a relatively easy walk with some beautiful views of the lake along the view. We walked in late afternoon so the sun was setting just enough in the background on the way back it reflected beautifully in the water. I would go back to Ireland... More

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.....
