We were here the week of Thanksgiving. We walked up the trail to the waterfall and found this incredible view. Even though it was misty and cloudy, this place was amazing. It is absolutely the most beautiful place I have ever seen. The trees were...More

A short walk from the parking lot. Don’t believe the pony cart drivers , who will tell you there’s no parking. There is! What’s most interesting is the vegetation and the layer of green moss on everything. The fall itself is pretty but tiny compared...More

We enjoyed a lovely hike from Muckross Estate up to Torc Waterfall. We passed red deer and lakes and old stone bridges. The waterfall was rushing. There are steps you can climb to continue up once you reach the waterfall. The path up to the...More

If you love to hike, it is a lovely place to spend the afternoon! The hike is for all levels as you can choose how far up you would like to go.

Torc waterfall is not particularly splendid in itself but as a return destination for a walk from Muckross House, a pleasant activity and place to visit. It is snout a 30 minute walk from the House past fields that include grazing deer.

We were able to get up close to the waterfall. Can hike up a trail or drive right up to the waterfall. Definitely recommend seeing it, won’t take up too much time unless you go thru the grounds to get there

THe walk from the parking lot closest to the falls is only a 5 minute walk. If you decide to go up the steps after viewing the falls takes another 5 mins to the first level. You can't see the waterfall from there. But... More

It's kinda on the other side of Killarney. Like the cathedral is in town and then Torc Waterfall is out past Muckross House in the park. Not terribly far though.
