Quiet surroundings and an easy walk from the parking lot to the fall. We were there early in the morning so there were very few tourists. This allowed for some stunning photos. It's not the grandest waterfall we've ever seen but worth a short stop.

Took a jaunting cart from Muckross House to the waterfall. It's a short hike up to the waterfall. You don't see it until you come around a bend in the path and then it's right there! Beautiful spot and getting there by jaunting cart gave us a view of the park as well!

Although it's a bit too touristy for my liking, the waterfall and it's environs are stunning. If you enjoy a challenging walk to it, there's a second car park for it, off the main drag, with a 300m walk down to it via some very steep steps.

A beautiful waterfall; not as high as some I've seen, but beautiful nonetheless. A very short uphill hike from the tour bus parking lot.

I was there in the peak of summer, and so decided to head up early to avoid the crowds. Unfortunately everyone else had decided to do the same! It was a really pretty waterfall, but I am not a huge fan of large crowds, so found the number of people there diminished it slightly. It had been raining the day... More

Went to torch waterfall on our way home from killarney, it's absolutely beautiful. It's a nice short walk to see the waterfall and there is a longer track if you want to do a longer walk. Lots of parking and it's well sign posted. Definitely worth a visit, and it won't take up much time if you want to have... More

My mother, daughter and I took a jaunting car ride from Muckross House to the Torc Waterfall. The jaunting car ride was fun but the Torc Waterfall was a little disappointing. As with any waterfall, it is nice but for those looking to see something special.....this is not your attraction.
