Best on a rainy day and south wind. Than the waterfall looks like slomo. Don't forget your rain jacket. Outdoor shoes are necessary if you want to climb close to the waterfall. Different ways available, some with steps and a little slippy when wet.

A very pretty spot, and just the scenery on the drive to it alone makes it worth a visit. Easy access on well marked path following the stream up to the waterfall. Only a reasonably small waterfall when we were there but a beautiful scene...More

This isn't well signposted from the main road, so follow signs for Glencar Waterfall and it's only down the road. It dries up during warm weather, so is best seen in the winter months when it has been raining a lot. There is a lovely...More

My family and I took the hike to see this waterfall. The trail is gravel and very well marked. It is impossible to get lost or accidentally veer from the route. We went a little over a kilometer (.69 miles according to my workout app)...More

We read the information board and saw quite clearly that 'if you can't see the waterfall from where you are standing it isn't flowing'. A bit disappointed we decided to make the climb up anyway. It was a wonderful walk on a good path through...More

The area is great and beautiful, scenic and really picturesque. The walk to the waterfall is a around a 30 minute climb on a nicely maintained walkpath, easily doable even with 4 year olds. As for the waterfall itself.. well.. it has to be great.....More

This is down the road from the more-publicized Glencar Falls, and is a much more impressive site. Only enough parking for 4-5 cars. An uphill hike you through a beautiful wooded slope and grazing sheep to see a waterfall that occasionally flows up if the...More
