The hike was nice, plenty of photos to capture, parking was a bear as people park on rocks and within inches of your car... The waterfall though pretty was not as big as I expected, you can hear the waterfall from the road so it catches you off guard, but still plenty of great photos and memories.

My husband and I have a cabin in Western North Carolina that is called the land of a 1000 waterfalls, so unfortunately this waterfall did not stand up to the many amazing ones we have in our area. I like to photograph them and hoped to add this to my collection at the cabin, but didn't wow us.

The greenery, the trees and nature at its best! We visited here late afternoon as many of the tour buses and visitors were leaving. It was a great time to visit as the afternoon colours with the sunshine were just beautiful. The short walk up to the waterfall under the green canopy was lovely and cool. Seeing the waterfall was...

It was rainy when we arrived so we did not do the whole trail, but what we saw was nice. I would definitely go back.

We found Torc Waterfall on a drive in Killarney located just a couple miles from town. There is a short path from the parking lot to the falls where you can take photos or continue on the path for a longer hike.

The waterfall is beautiful and there is a Parking lot close by so you don't have to walk all the way from the main parking lot if you don't feel like a 30 min hike.

the Torc Waterfall isn't that far out of the way in and around the Killarney National Park. There are a few different signs for it but you want the one where the parking is kind of in the woods. I couldn't imagine walking all the way from some of the other places. Once you're there it's a good 5-7 minute... More

What a beautiful view! An eye treat in a peaceful enviroment. This is just as I imagined the irish scenery: woods with high trees, green colors, lots mossy rocks and stone bridges. There are a few trails that leads you to this spot which are ideal for walking or taking a bike. There were stairs to the left of the... More

The waterfall in Killarney is what made my trip during the summer! The walk up the the fall is breath taking, the falls are amazing and peaceful even with locals of tourists! Brilliant place to take a few family photos!
