We loved the whole place, the noise of the thundering water, and the fast flowing rivers was great. The walk up was good,and then the peacefulness of the lake totally surprising.

Came upon this attraction totally by surprise while we were car touring through Ireland. Nice, easy hike to the falls. Area is simply gorgeous. If you see the sign, follow it...worth it.

I found this waterfall on an evening drive from my hotel in Sligo. It truly was a find, with Glencar lake across the road from it.
It is about 10-15 mins from the main road, but well signposted the whole way.
There is a dedicated car park and amenities (WCs) and a lovely path following the water up to the waterfall.
The place is really serene and the waterfall is just so beautiful when you get there. It is well worth the visit and is only a couple of minutes walk from the road.

It was raining the day we went but decided that as we were going to see a waterfall it did not really matter. Car park is good and there is a small tourist office/information place. Bit of a walk up to the waterfall but worth the effort. Could see it is possible to go walking around the waterfall but we were not that adventurous. Will definitely return some time in the future and hope it is a dry day.
