Torc is a great walk, with amazing views from the top. It can be started from the bottom of Torc waterfall, which is beautiful, but if you are short on time, you can park in the upper carpark above the waterfall. Then the walk can be completed in under three hours. There are very handy railway sleepers along most of... More

Visited Torc on a saturday afternoon. There was a piper playing as we walked along. The water flows down as you walk up..it really is beautiful. There's quite a number of steps up to the top so it would be difficult for some people maybe. Definitely worth a visit. Great picture opportunities.

The waterfall is beautiful and the (short, easy) walk to it is so GREEN! We were here off season, so parking was easy and there were very few other people there. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area!

We took the open bus tour to Torc Waterfall and it was such a great visit! I wish we could have stayed longer and gone for a hike as well.

Easy parking just off the road, a not-too-difficult walk up to the waterfall, and the sheer beauty of the setting made this visit worthwhile. We also ventured up the steps into the woods on the left of the waterfall, and were rewarded with a spectacular view over the lakes of Killarney - wonderful!

This waterfall is so accessible to all age groups! The only issue we encountered was a visitor taking so many selfies of herself that we had a bit of a wait for her to climb down off the rocks so we could take pictures of this beautiful waterfall without her in it!

This is so simple and beautiful and can be easily worked into someone's trip to Killarney without taking it over. It's a short walk to the waterfall which is no Niagara Falls that's for sure but has a magical and quaint fell to it.

We visited the waterfall over Easter Weekend and there were lots of tourist. The waterfall itself is lovely, but small. I was amazed at the vegetation, felt like one is in a forest. The lakes across the road are beautiful
