    Nice way to spend a couple of hours
    This was a lovely way to spend a few hours. The waterfall is dramatic and is an easy walk in with a good footpath nearly all of the way. My dog was kept on the lead as advised by the signage, sheep in the last section of the walk.

    Magical falls.
    Exit the A55 at junction 13 when you see the sign for Aber Falls Distillery. The access road is very narrow with passing places. There are 2 car parks Lower and Upper which are close to each other. Parking fee is £5. Coins only in Lower and coin or card in Upper. The round trip from the car park to the falls and back is 2.5 miles and takes about an hour or so to walk. The path is very good, with only a slight gradient. From Upper car park the path is suitable for prams. The falls themselves are magical and awesome. We'll worth the trip.

    An excellent experience
    Excellent tour , tour guide (Elaine) has been there from the start of this now 6 year old project & spoke passionately about the place & the products. Lovely tasting session with zero sales pitch. Just friendly & interesting. Afterwards we had a light lunch in the lovely cafe / bistro area. This was first class & not too expensive. All the staff were lovely. Overall a great place to visit.

    Nice scenic walk
    Great walk up to the falls which a nice one. Not too steep places, to stop on the way and great photos opportunities on the way up. Seen a few people pushing prams having a hard time but the walk itself isn’t too difficult. Either park down in the village then walk up which adds about 30minutes to the walk all uphill. Car park is £5 per visit bottom one takes cash but can be card in the upper one.

    Wonderful waterfalls
    We got there early and parked in top car park, it is £5 park, coins required, but as goes towards maintaining park and paths happy to pay, please park sensibly though as gets very busy later. The walk itself was generally easy with a good path, dog walkers should keep them on leads as sheep grazing but sadly not all did and there was fresh poo in places, please pick it up and take it back with you. The waterfalls were amazing, and we did get wet when got nearer, was impressed.

    Fantastic walk, but don't try to drive to the car park
    We stupidly tried to get to the main car park on a Saturday, but the road up from the village is nowhere near capable of managing the tourist traffic. Too many cars, drivers with no common sense, walkers with no common sense, stone walls and mostly single lane roads lead to you thinking you'll be sleeping in your car for a few days and was more scary than the zip wire we did. After managing to get back down (we had to get to the car park and come back again), we took the much more sensible option of parking in a car park near the cafe not far off the main road. It was about a mile easy walk to the trail start near the car park but was much more relaxing than the drive and had the added excitement of seeing cars struggling to get up/down the road. The walk to and the falls themselves were fantastic and well worth the effort. Highly recommended.

    Aber Falls walk
    We parked at the entrance of the village at the free parking and walked up to the start of the trail to the falls, as we know it can be very busy to park at the Falls car parks,which is £5, and the roads are very narrow and get very busy. We went early to miss the busy times and had a lovely walk to the Falls. It is an amazing place to spend some time, take a picnic and have a paddle in the shallow areas. We stopped in the village cafe on our way back to the car and had a very nice coffee, with lovely friendly service. Definitely recommend visiting the Falls and cafe if in the area.

    Abet Falls circular walk
    Nice gradual uphill walk via the ‘yellow trail’ to Aber falls where I left the family & did the rest of the circular walk myself for a total distance of just over 4 miles. It was a lot less busy walking North on the Western side of the valley after viewing the Rhaeadr Fach waterfall. A couple of muddy bits on that track along ‘the other side’ & the last very steep bit down the eroded path into Abergeyngregyn village was a bit brutal without sticks. If you decided to do the circular walk in reverse starting from that end, you will see Aber Falls from a distance a lot sooner than you would from the main yellow trail. Needless to say, this is a popular waterfall & depending on what day, time & weather you arrive, you could be fighting for a car park place.

    Brilliant walk and a free good few hours out 🤩
    We arrived late afternoon and parked just outside the village for free, this is recommended due to parking being sort after in the small car parks further up the hill. We walked along the path to the waterfall which is beautiful however not suitable for people with difficulty walking as quite uneven and rocky in places. People were walking with small children and on bikes. The walk took about an hour and was worth it for the view. Lovely area for picnic, take your own as no shops of facilities up there! Car parks were all busy and quite small but if you’re early or lucky you might be able to get in £5 cash only for car parks. Lots of loose sheep on the track but they seem to keep away from people.

    Lovely walk with beautiful waterfall at the end
    As suggested by others we parked in the village and walked up the hill to the start of the walk to avoid car parking difficulties. The walk itself was lovely. A gradual incline along a gravel pathway all the way to the waterfall. The scenery was beautiful. There were sheep roaming around but they seemed very timid and tended to move away quickly as you passed. The walk was well signposted and had a couple of interesting information points. Note to self:- next time read them on the way up rather than on the way back, then you know what to look out for on your walk. There and back at a leisurely pace with a stop at the waterfall, the walk took us just over 2 hours. We could have extended the walk by completing the loop however it was a really hot day so we just went to the falls and back.

Stunning location and circular walk around the valley through beautiful countryside on relatively easy paths with just a few rocky stairs around the falls.
Keep an eye out just off the track for rocky ruins that are covered in grass and moss or being used as a snug by the many sheep that roam the valley.
Car park was busy soon after 11am so recommend getting there early: It costs £5 to park but the machine only takes coins.
It was very busy at the falls on a Sunday too: not recommended if you're seeking solitude. Walk further along the path from Aber falls to the quieter but smaller Rhaeadr bach.

We visited here as we were doing Aber Falls distillery on the same day,

Parked in the free parking just before the village and walked up, yes you can park nearer to the attraction but where is the fun in that.

Parking and toilets at the start of the walk really well sign posted up to the falls and a good path, I would say wear boots as it was raining when we went and the path was saturated that falls themselves are picture perfect and if you want Ed a longer walk you can join the circular route by crossing the foot bridge near the falls, we would do this next time but as we had somewhere to be we did chance not being finished in time.

Overall this was a great morning out, we stopped at the Cafe for a warming coffee and then wondered back tp the car,

Absolutely stunning waterfall and area around. If you have time and like a long walk then park in the village at the bottom but it is quite a walk up to the other car parks at the top so if you have children would recommend using the top car park. The top car park was cash only £5 and by lunch time it is full. There are 2 walks, the long way round which was about 2 hours from the top car park but the other route takes about 25 mins at a fast walk. Place was busy but lots of room to distance. Defiantly a must see if visiting North Wales.

Beautiful walk up to an absolutely stunning waterfall. You're able to cross the waterfall using rocks and stones which adds an element of fun too! We ate at a local cafe called Caffi a canolfen gwybodaeth which did delicious paninis and spectacular cake. Only downside was parking cost £5 for the day and could only be paid in coins.

Wonderful walk up to waterfall (took us a couple of hours there and back). The path is nice - its gravel and very wide. We went on a Sunday afternoon and it was pretty crowded so would say go early if you want it quieter. Spectacular views.

We were staying in Bangor so had to visit here after alot of people recommended it. We managed to park ok which was a relief after hearing stories of not being able to park, we visited early afternoon and parking is £3 for all day. We had a pleasant walk up to the waterfall, it is fairly up hill but it is fine and definately worth it once you get to the top and see the waterfall which is absolutely stunning.

Abergwyngregyn is just of the A55 Expressway. You can park free on the edge of the village and walk the extra mile through the village and up the pretty lane. Save the £5 parking fee at the official carpark and see a lot more of the natural beauty of the valley to the sounds of the birds and bubbling river.

The walk to the falls is through stunning scenery and is smooth enough for child buggies and wheelchairs. The terrain at the falls is slightly more challenging for the less able but great for adventurous kids who can clamber down to the shallow river and paddle in the (usually very cold) water.

If you have parked at the edge of the village you might enjoy walking over the wooden bridge by the falls and heading west to the second falls, then follow the path over the hills back round to Abergwyngregyn, enjoying the stunning views of the sea and across to Anglesey and Puffin Island

There are toilets at the car park but none at the falls.

Why not take a picnic? You may end up staying longer than you expect, especially if you have adventurous kids.

The falls are definitely worth a visit, so stunning! Parking is £5 payable only in coins so make sure you come prepared, the road getting there is very small and only one car can pass at locations so can imagine it's a nightmare at busy times.
We visited on a Monday afternoon at around 4pm and had the falls basically to ourselves and saw no other cars getting to the car park.
An easy return walk, about 30-40 mins each way, on a flat path with a small incline at the beginning. Suitable for buggys. Saw people having a dip in the pools and wish I had taken a swim suit.

Firstly, please ensure you are aware to bring £5 in coins only for the parking charge - and that the machine only accepts £1 coins, £2 coins and 50p coins.
Luckily, we had read a review on Trip Advisor before we went, so were able to scrabble together some coins; however, a lot of people we met at the car park only had £5 notes or cards. As there are no shops nearby, and car parking spaces are few and far between on busy days, thus really is a bit of a problem, if you don’t come prepared with your coins.
Sad really, as so many other places allow you to pay parking via your card.
So, there are two car parks, but they do get full on nice days. There are decent toilets in the upper car park.
The walk to the Falls takes about 40 minutes each way, it is a little strenuous initially, but then levels out.
The Falls are stunning, and definitely worth the visit. Nice places to stop at the Falls if you bring your own picnic.
The village itself is only small, and we didn’t notice any shops or cafes.

We got there at 2pm and it was very busy - we got the last parking spot on the road! Parking is £5 for all day which is reasonable but if you’re only visiting the falls, it’s a bit pricey!

The walk itself is fine with a few uphill hikes to contend with - saw a few people with pushchairs struggling! The falls are breathtaking and well worth the walk. It was very busy but there’s plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the view with many people bringing a picnic.

Definitely worth a trip!!
