“Glencar Lake”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

The peace of the place, with the thundering noise in the background. We enjoyed the place. It is a lovely area, and the mountains are breathtaking.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

I liked the crisp, fresh air of an autumnal evening as we walked up to the waterfall.....I liked walking back down and looking out over the lake and watching a young couple kiss at the lakeside.
I liked the romantic side of it all.

“Very picturesque”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

If you're en route to Sligo this is definitely worth the detour. It's a bit of a hike on a not great road but the views when you arrive are spectacular.
It's amazing how mountains, trees and water in the right order can be breathtaking!
