“Well wort a detour for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We were passing through Yeats country when we saw the sign for the waterfall. Glad we did! It's a short walk up a small hill from the free car park. The waterfall is quite big and the setting in woodland is beautiful. Returning to the car park we availed ourselves of the good (free) toilets and bought nice ice creams from a friendly man in a van.

“Lovely walk and beautiful waterfall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

If you have a half hour to spend on a lovely little site, check this out. An easy walk including stairs however will take you to this little gem in the forest. Free and plenty of parking. When leaving the car park, don't forget to check out the wonderful scenery opposite the falls and the very adorable sheep and babbling brook

“Nice but don't bring the pets.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Pretty little attraction, well maintained pathways and stairs make for a safe walk. Great photo opportunities and a good sized carpark (with ice cream van) make this a pleasant experience. Don't expect a full day out, it is only a ten minute stroll and don't take the dogs, some idiot (probably working for the council) has decided that all dog owners are irresponsible and has banned them. If its a hot day there is little shade in the car park. We saw three families split up or turn back because of this daft ban.
