Visited here and really enjoyed it. Views are so beautiful and the waterfall is stunning. .we walked all the way to the top and continued on the walk towards the national park. I highly recommend it. Fantastic photo opportunities of the lakes along the way.

Easy, picturesque walk, I was there at Easter weekend and it was mega busy, it would be much nicer early morning during the week, I'm sure.

Great place for a long walk. Also near the lakes and Muckross House. Don't miss this! Wear your walking shoes! And check out the nearby Lake Hotel and its grounds perhaps after for an Irish Coffee!

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 walk to the waterfall from the lakeside car parks is for just about everyone...it's a short uphill stretch that's all.

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
