Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Province of Munster / County Kerry / Killarney / Torc Waterfall
A convenient place to start your exploration of Ireland's oldest national park, Torc Waterfall offers panoramic views of the region's three interlinked lakes. You can reach the base of the waterfall via a short trail through a densely wooded area, covered in moss and known for attracting herds of native red deer. This waterfall is an important natural landmark on one of the country's major long-distance walks, a 214 km (133 mi) long circular trail that begins and ends in the nearby town of Killarney. You can access this popular trail by ascending a series of steps just to the left of the waterfall. To see the fall at its full glory, visit after a heavy rain. Put Torc Waterfall into our Killarney road trip site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Killarney.

Beautiful little waterfall and a nice location for a hike. However if you are just going to see the waterfall, I think there are better ones and the parking is limited.

Fantastic place to visit. We took the hour walk around the forest seeing the waterfall half way around. Parked in the top car park and walked down to the lake and back up past the waterfall to the top again. Steep climb but if you just want to see the waterfall, park at the bottom car park and its just a short walk. Views are fantastic as you ascend though.
Very beautiful and a must see place to visit in Ireland. Very quiet, greener and covered with long trees around. Nice n clear walkway's to walk & can go up to the mountain. Really enjoyable place for all ages. Recommend this place for nature lovers.
