Four of us did this walk and our dog. It was incredible. It was very busy as the sun was shining. So peaceful and tranquil.

The waterfall is picturesque and the walk was for someone of average fit level. There is a steeper climb and this is for someone of higher fit level, however; once you reach the top it is only a small stream.

The green trees and waterfall offer such breathtaking views. I would not miss this site and you can take a short amount of time to see the falls if you are trying to squeeze several things into your day.

A nice easy trek to see the real beauty of Killarney. Takes roughly about at hour to the top. Pretty easy to do too often see young kids on the path.

A truly lovely walk to the top of Torc Mountain. Fairly gradual ascent along wooden planks and rocky paths, with beautiful views of the Kerry mountains and lakes all around. The view from the top is spectacular you can see Killarney and the surrounding mountains...More

Depends on personal hiking condition. We made it in 70 minutes to the top. But we were of good speed. I would say up to 100 minutes is ok.
