We stopped to see the Torc Waterfall during the Ring of Kerry tour. Its a beautiful waterfall, very lovely walk up thru the woods. Well worth the stop.

The walk to get up to the waterfall is wonderful. You are walking through green forests, to the left trees with moss up their sides, and a babbling brook to your right. We went to Muckross Abbey, parked the car and took a horse buggy...More

The falls are lovely but not easily accessible for people who cannot walk about 600 feet on an incline. When we got to the top the view was beautiful but I must confess that it was very buggy. There were many gnats in the air...More

We went to the waterfall after a few days of rainfall and it was impressive . Car parking will be limited in the summer and you do get approached by the Jaunty carts (horse and cart) operators plying for trade. There are free toilets which...More

This waterfall is well worth seeing. There's the option to continue walking higher to see the falls at the top. Don't bother doing that, unless you just fancy a walk. It's very steep, quite a long way, and absolutely not worth it when you get...More

We walked to Torc Waterfalls through the beautiful Moss Forest. On the way there we all decided that this is where the fairies live. It is a magical peaceful forest with a lovely stream and waterfalls. It is an easy hike about 15 mins from...More

How far is Waterfall from St Mary's Cathedral?

Response from Bethagee1 | Reviewed this property |
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.
