Having arranged to meet up with family members for a picnic and barbecue we arrived at the venue and paid our admission to enter. What most people don’t seem to appreciate is that when you pay for admission you also expect an appropriate level of...More

Small, expensive entrance fee and have I mentioned small? Was super disappointed with the view. The waterfall is small and all other rounds are just mountain side. Save your money and go to the Powerscourt gardens .

The separate entrance fee was well worth the experience. Falls were great. Lots of water when we were there. Falls and sun breaking through the mist made for interesting photos. Plan about an hour to walk up and around and back. Small playground for kids....More

After stopping off last week with my partner we came back today with the kids and extended family. Can't see the issue with the entry fee, we spent the day there, kids splashed in the water and we had a BBQ followed by ice creams....More

This is a fantastic place to visit. I have been here in winter and summer. In summer its busy, the shop is open with dinner options. In winter shop may be open but with limited options. Either way it's spectacularly scenic, the playground can keep...More

It’s a nice waterfall but I think a charge of €6 to see it is daylight robbery. It’s a natural attraction so in my opinion there should be no charge to see it! Avoid unless you are really desperate for a photo in front of...More

I do not regret visiting the falls but do think it is a bit overpriced. It was also too bad that there had been little rain so the waterfall was not as impressive as it could've been. That being said, it was one of our...More

We visited the highest waterfall in Ireland and the park, it was a pretty place, but rather expensive for an hours visit. Beautiful 120 year old oak trees and greenery. The place is rather busy and it is hard to secure a good photo-op. This...More

You can't beat a nature's natural wonder but I did not understand why they charge you for it. The trails surrounding were scenic and there was definitely more to see than just the falls. Not worth the price if you are going just to see...More

It is on private property and there is a gate across the road which I am sure they close and lock up over the winter. You have to pay an admittance fee to go back to where it is located, as you would when entering a park....

Hi Robert Unfortunately not and the rounds are very narrow so I would not recommend walking to the Waterfall. Warm Regards Carmel
