Categories: Waterfalls, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web
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.

  • This is a beautiful waterfall to look at...and VERY easy to get to. Wide paths and nothing difficult about getting to. Well worth going to. 
  • We love this visit, and us impressed (no plastics, abandoned cans) cleaning, everything is very well indicated and we impressed the beauty of forest and in particular from cataracts. The visit is worth.

  • A fairly easy, short walk (10 minutes) from the road, Torc Waterfall is not to be missed if you a a nature-lover! I was unaware it was as large or as beautiful as it is and was delighted to have made ...  read more »
  • This is well worth the visit! Such a breathtaking waterfall. We took a carriage ride out to it and paid to do that. It was worth it, but it would have been a nice hike too! This was a great place to visit and I hope to go back someday soon!!
  • We had a great time, the waterfall is beautiful and was running with springtime water! We took a jaunting cart from Muckross House. The driver waited for us to see the waterfall and get some great pictures. I recommend this trip!
  • There are many wonderful sights in Kilarney NP and Torc Waterfall is among the best. Skip Muckross House if you're short on time and see this instead.
  • Beautiful location. Hiking trails all around or a quick walk from the car Park. A must stop if in the area. Gets a little crowded so try to go when it might not be so busy
  • Really beautiful, worth the walk and if you are in a good shape, I recommend the long walk (red on the map), the view at the highest point is breathtaking (to do on a sunny day preferably)
