A peaceful park, good view to the lake, and the waterfall is also worth a stop. But not a big program, max half an hour long "journay".

Extremely scenic area. The lake is framed by high mountains. There is also a very nice waterfall at the end of the lake.

Glencar Lake and Waterfall has been tarted up very nicely since I was last there a long time ago. Childrens play area, cafes, and the lake and waterfall. Great for a stroll to break a car journey. Ideal for anyone travelling from Sligo to Belfast...More

The lake, the sheep, the waterfall are oall very beautiful, peaceful and truly lovely. Unfortunately, must be crowded in summer, as there are now bus parking spots!

Beautiful lake, especially on a sunny day. Also there is a car park right by both Glencar lake and waterfall, with clean bathrooms (and there was an ice cream truck there that day, which was a nice surprise!).
