My fiance and I visited in May 2015. It was the best part for me. We hiked all the way to the top. Hiking the blue trail was not enough. It was worth it. We were lucky that the sun came out in the day and it didn't rain until late in the evening.

Absolutely stunning - not too bad of a climb to the top with beautiful forest surrounding you. Must see!

Thr walk to Torc Falls is not long, but it is uphill ll the way. Although the Falls are not the largest in the world, they certainly rank as among the most beautiful. It had beeen raining for several days prior to our visit, so they were quite literally roaring! This is a stop that is well woth taking while... More

This is a lovely spot if you need to get out for an hour for some fresh air. The waterfall itself is impressive. There are 3 walks of different lengths which are marked at the waterfall. If I have one complaint the walks aren't well marked once you leave the waterfall. The walk I went on finished a little down... More

The waterfall is beautiful, but that's really the high point. We took the medium-difficulty walk. All walks make a steep ascent to a couple of nice views then loop around the waterfall, cross the road and end on a trail betweenthe road and the river. good place to stretch your legs after a long drive. Not much in the way... More

Beautiful country stroll through Irish woods and meadows with a picturesque waterfall as a reward! This walk/cycle is well worth the effort especially if the sun is shinning. We hiked to and up the Torc waterfall

Great place to visit. It was lovely family walk. Kids enjoyed the walk up the mountain. The kids enjoyed it. We caught it at the right time all thanks to the rain.

I wouldn't recommend Torc Waterfall by itself as a great site....but there is a truly lovely walk up to the waterfall, along a stream lined with moss covered trees that makes this a wonderful destination. If I was a local it's the kind of place I'd visit with a good book to spend an afternoon. And....unlike so make other attractions,... More
