“Unexpected Waterfalls are the Best!”
Review of Glencar Waterfall

So we're driving down the N15 on the way to Sligo and my husband says to me "Oh we've just entered Co. Leitrim and there is literally NOTHING to see here, we'll be out in a few minutes." I see a sign for a waterfall. No idea how long the drive is or what to expect, I turn off and start down the windy road. Unlike the majority of people who visited this lovely attraction, I was probably the most surprised by it. What a breathtaking sight after hours of time in the car looking at the rain move over the fields.. following us along our route. Absolutely a lovely pit-stop on the drive to Sligo.

While visiting Kilronan Castle, the concierge recommended Glencar Waterfall on our way to Sligo. The waterfall itself is very beautiful. Nothing spectacular, but worth the ride. The drive down is absolutely gorgeous. We were lucky to have great weather and our pictures came out beautifully. The scenery was easily some of the most beautiful we encountered on our trip to Ireland. Perfect for families, couples or just a day trip with friends. You won't regret it!

If your visiting Sligo, you must see Glencar waterfall. Its quite a breathtaking site, much bigger than we expected. Lovely well tended walkways to the waterfall and good parking. I would give it an excellent mark if maybe there was a small cafe there, however there are toilets.

Waterfall is eclipsed by horror of industrial levels of decking, balustrades and general over development of a very small area. Spent very brief visit wondering if wall to wall pine was more or less interesting that a Homebase sale.
