Visit Torc Waterfall

A majestic waterfall right in the middle of Killarney wild-forest

Torc Waterfall is precisely located at the foot of Torc Mountain, one of the highest mountains of Killarney national park.

Within a 5 miles from the town of Killarney, the waterfall is accessible to trekkers, but also to cars, thanks to a car-park located at the entrance of the site.

With its 3.3 feet height, the waterfalls will let you contemplate the savage beauty of an untamed wilderness. Huge and heavy blocks of stone, polished by the fury of the water, scattered in the waterfall, make the place even more outstanding.
On the other hand, the forest offers a splendid setting to these waterfalls, and you will surely be amazed by the acoustic power of water hurtling the rocks.

For the sporty ones, a sharp drop-off path will lead you to the top of the waterfall, and to an exceptional point of view, dominating the cascade and the surroundings.

During your trek, you will enjoy the cascade water spray, which will give your adventure a refreshing turn (most of all during summer! During winter, take a raincoat!).

Expect having a wonderful time, even if the weather is rainy, which will stay engraved in your memory!
