Awesome waterfall in a awesome and weird green forest. Not bad walk from the road either. Could see the waterfall from its bottom and also from the top

Easy, short walk to the waterfall from the parking area! Beautiful moss covered trees and a stone stairway to a lovely view point. We even saw a huge deer who was obviously no stranger to people.

This is an easy walk and very beautiful. A must see when in the area. The green is just the color you are hoping for in Ireland

It’s a beautiful spot and just a short walk from the parking area. The trail to the waterfall has lovely moss-covered trees. Waterfall itself is very pretty. You can do it pretty quickly if you’re rushed. We did not venture past the falls.

Visited Torc waterfall as a couple. Found the walk to the waterfall very nice however we continued to walk up the steps there thinking we could get to the top of the waterfall. 20 minutes walking later we had to turn around to go back...More

The walk through a forest of moss covered trees was just stunning. There was a lot of water coming down the falls which made it a spectacular sight as well.

Torc waterfall is gorgeous, every time we visit we’re in awe of its beauty. It’s an easy waterfall to visit with the falls only a few minutes walk along an easy path from the car park. They are only one of two very shallow steps...More

The walk up the 250 approx steps to the top and on beyond to the Old Kenmare Road is worth the effort, especially for the views, peace, tranquility and the people you might get a chance to talk with.

There is a car park down the bottom of the waterfall but a steep slope up to see the waterfall... you probably could push a buggy but may find it a bit difficult. I would carry your baby if I am honest.

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.
