Yes, it's a beautiful waterfall in beautiful Ireland, but you only would stop here as you happen to be going by. No pay area, there is a small parking lot. You can easily see it on the only road going straight west from Ardara toward...More

Assaranca Waterfall is right on the road (although the whole road is off the beaten track so speak). There's some limited free parking right by the waterfall just off the road with a patch of lawn/grass that sort of invites you rest a moment and/or...More

We have visited the waterfall now a few times and each time it amazes us! It is very peaceful and has beautiful views.

I posted a video of the falls on the Wild Atlantic Way facebook page and it went viral. Such is the wow factor of the waterfall. Apparently it is sometimes only a dribble depending on the weather but we visited when there hadn't been much...More

We have had a wet and windy week so the waterfall was very impressive! Best part of our day. The road leads on to Maghera beach and caves but it was torrential rain at that point 😔 so we skipped that.

This waterfall is right along the road from Maghera Beach towards N56. You pull off the road and there it is. It is beautiful and worth a stop just for the photo opportunity. It would be a great spot for a picnic.

A gift on the way to Maghera Beach and Caves. If we had time would have taken a dip in after being at the beach.

We drove down the narrow road to this beautiful little waterfall with parking area on the way to the beach. We had a lovely picnic there, and very few people came while we were there.

The falls are at the side of the road so no restrictions for dogs.

The roads are winding and overlook farmlands and a river that meets sea. ( the road is not high until one point that overlooks the water) It is not treacherous though :)

While we were there a lady was out for a walk and stopped to tidy it up so we asked the same question. It is for a woman who lived in the area and this was her favorite place, so after her passing they placed a memorial... More
