I completed a three hour hike to the peak of Torc Mountain. I must confess that toward the end of the climb my knees were a bit resentful but my brain and soul knew it was worth the physical challenge. The views of Killarney from the top of Torc Mountain was amazing and a must see.

The mountain walk is not for the faint hearted, there are many steps to climb but the sight of the waterfall made it worth it.

We loved everything about Torc waterfall and the guided walking tour. It was a splendid sunny morning ( one of the few that we had, but that's ok cause I liked the rainy misty weather) and this is a place that has to be seen to believe. Beauty beyond description!

Torc mountain has some pretty incredible views. You can see out to other parts of the Ring and towards the town. There are waterfalls nearby that were gushing when we were there. Felt like a northern rainforest. And the big trees protect you a bit from the rain.

Give yourself time for this magical walk. We rushed through and I regret that. The beauty and magical quality of Torc Mountain is almost one of a kind. GORGEOUS scenery. Make sure your camera battery is charged and you have plenty of room on your memory card. You'll need it!
