Liked the scenery and peacefulness and fresh air. Didn't like that it was a bit of a drive to get there.

We took a jaunting car to the Torc Waterfall and we loved it! The waterfall was a great site and our driver was fabulous and gave us lots of tips to seeing the city. This is a must do in Killarney!

If you want an uplifting, breathtaking hike then put on your walking boots and in hand your hiking stick be ready for a fourty minute unique adventure. Children over five can do this also. Wow what a beautiful way to spend an outdoor afternoon or morning. Backpack some water and a snack.

For those who did not like the Torc waterfall. Are you blind. The walk up is out of this world. The falls are pretty and the parking is free. What else is there to ask for? Buy some glasses... Liam & Colleen

It is very beautifull waterfall and you can arrive in the very easy way. It is part of the ring of Kerry. You "MUST" visit it.

If you're doing the Ring of Kerry you have no excuse to miss this stop. Torc Waterfall is clearly marked and only 5 minute walk from parking lot. Beautiful photo op!

Beautiful little waterfall. Great stop if you just want to visit something quickly. The walk to the waterfall is very quick, didn't take long at all to get there from where we'd our car parked. There were steps to walk up further, I'm presuming to see the waterfall from the top. But we were happy just to stay at the... More

I enjoyed the walk up to the falls and the many photo opportunities along the way. The green moss all over the trees was joyous to see and the creek running from the bottom of the falls was just lovely.

The forest was cool and green; a man in kilts playing the bagpipes was on the trail. The terrain actually reminded me very much of The Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee, U.S.A.
