This hike is wonderful. Takes about an hour depending upon how much you stop to enjoy the scenery, take pictures, breath the fresh air... Doing this as well as the waterfall makes the whole trip more worth it.

We only walked to the waterfall and that is a delightful photo-op. Some continued up the trails but we turned and went back to our car.

I very much enjoyed our short hike to the waterfall. I loved hearing the water and listening to it cascade down the rocks. Very beautiful scenery and a very easy hike for most I would think.

Brilliant scenery, lovely climb to the top (if a little slippy in places). The waterfall itself is fantastic. Well worth a stop if you are going to Muckross House etc.

Torc mountain is a great starting point for mountain climbing you have timber planks place along alot of the journey up and stopping points. We did it with our children of 6 and 8 and they managed it. A bit of chocolate came in handy...More

Short distance from the town with a small parking area with toilets. Different grades of walks and advice given on board. I wouldn't say that the waterful was that impressive but all the same worth a look.

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.
