Well worth a visit. Fabulous scenery and a beautiful area to walk around. A clean but small children's play area. If you're into breathtaking views...this is the place.

Just beautiful Its set in a small park with seating, great for picnics. Lots of great parking and open clean public toilets. A small coffee shop at the gate with... More

I have seen the Torc Waterfall before but it's nothing in comparison with the Glencar Waterfall! It's located next to a beautiful lake and in a stunning area. Great for hiking, walking and taking pictures!

Pleaseant well maintained place but not Niagara. .. it's no trek, just a short 5 min walk from car park. Playground for kids and nice cafe for adults. They should develop a nice mountain walk like Connemara park, then it would be worth the 20 minute drive off the main road.

Lovely drive to the waterfall when coming from the area of Manorhamilton. A nice easy walk up to the waterfall from the adequate car park at Glencar Lough and really worthwhile making the effort. Should you wish to stay for a while there are lovely views of the lough from the park and they is a good cafe nearby for... More
