the waterfall is easy to access if you don't want to walk far, only a 5minute walk but definitely worth it. also good for walks with different varying lengths from easy to hard.

This is worth a stop. Nice easy walk through the woods to the waterfall where you can take some great pictures and take in the scenery. Take a jaunting cart to Muckross house and gardens as well.

A mountain worth visiting! After Carrountoohil this mountain didn't disappoint us at all. With a average stamina you'll be fine and you won't have any problems making it to the top. It can be nice to climb up the mountain (at the last part) left...More

The torc falls, when we where there were incredible. Our driver said they were angry and he was right. The walk to the falls was brilliant.
