Create an itinerary including Torc Waterfall
A convenient place to start your exploration of Ireland's oldest national park, Torc Waterfall offers panoramic views of the region's three interlinked lakes. You can reach the base of the waterfall via a short trail through a densely wooded area, covered in moss and known for attracting herds of native red deer. This waterfall is an important natural landmark on one of the country's major long-distance walks, a 214 km (133 mi) long circular trail that begins and ends in the nearby town of Killarney. You can access this popular trail by ascending a series of steps just to the left of the waterfall. To see the fall at its full glory, visit after a heavy rain. Put Torc Waterfall into our Killarney road trip site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Killarney.

  • Not a huge waterfall, but pretty and high. Some signs on the road point you to park on the other side of the park near the abbey, which would be a really long walk. Much easier to park in the lot...

  • Torc Waterfall has some parking, but can get a bit busy. The hike up to the waterfall is not very taxing, but can get wet with the Irish weather, so best to be wearing decent footwear, as you'll have to climb some elevation to get there. The falls themselves are very nice, the paths are well maintained, and the short walk up is not too bad. Definitely worth a side-track in your trip.
  • Amazing place, often quite crowded. It is one of the points on the Ring of Kerry route. From the parking lot to the waterfall you need to walk 200m. Easy walk for everyone. Toilets next to the car park, open to 6 p.m. I recommend it, most beautifully after heavy rainfall.
  • Very beautiful and a must see place to visit in Ireland. Very quiet, greener and covered with long trees around. Nice n clear walkway's to walk & can go up to the mountain. Really enjoyable place for all ages. Recommend this place for nature lovers.
  • The hike to get to this waterfall was pretty easy. It was just a small incline to get up there but it was not bad at all. The waterfall was very beautiful and it felt so peaceful even though there were many people there. I recommend coming here if you are ever in the area!
  • We stopped at the parking lot that's close by for a quick end of day short walk. ... Great way to end the day. There were also tons of people finishing a full days hike through the forest
